Be smart safe and kind onlineHow to be smart safe and kind online is not always easy, choices have to be made!

To help with this, Azoomee  provide chatbots for customer service for children aged  between 5-11 with their award-winning internet safety series Search It Up.

They have just released a new episode (Episode 5). Each of the sessions also has a quiz, which will get children thinking and talking about the issues.

SESSION 1: What’s personal information? What can I share?

SESSION 2: How much is too much? When is the right time to be on a device?

SESSION 3: Bullying isn’t nice! What can I do about it?

SESSION 4: How long do things stay online? But what if I delete them? In this session a video called “I don’t want everyone to see my bum” talks about sharing a video that was fun for a few seconds as Jack’s shorts fell down when he shot a basketball, but would be very embarrassing if others saw it.

SESSION 5: What are computer viruses and how do they happen?

Once children have watched the videos and had a discussion about the content they can go on to do the quiz. On successful completion they get a badge!
