As part of our start-up program, the 5/6 students are participating in a series of eSmart sessions. These sessions are focused on being a good ‘digital citizen’, and so far we have explored a number of issues including cyberbullying, excessive gametime and the importance of privacy and password protection.
In our first session we watched an episode of the Game On series, which led to student discussions around the key issues and then students developed role plays based on these themes. Check out some pics below from 5/6O and 5/6F students preparing and delivering some of their role plays.
Obviously the conversations and activities around being a responsible digital citizen are important at the beginning of the year, but will also be revisited regularly throughout the year.
