New HTML Heroes Lessons
Webwise have created two new additional lessons to the 3rd & 4th Class edition of the HTML Heroes Online Safety Education Programme; Lesson 9. Chatting Online and Lesson 10. Playing Online.
These additional lessons are designed to complement the original lessons of the programme where the online safety themes and topics covered could be used as a follow on from the original lessons.
The centrepiece for each of the additional lessons is a short story featuring the HTML Heroes, Ruby and Archie, as they navigate the online environment and various internet safety themes and topics that arise as they do.
These stories contain much of the exposition and key learning points of the lesson.
Corresponding lessons from the original programme will be outlined in the Teacher Notes section of each new lesson.
This lesson aims to promote being kind and respectful when communicating online, especially with friends and classmates. It will also examine what friendship online looks like and explore different forms of online communication including messaging, video and pictures.
This lesson will explore gaming online and introduce pupils to the topic of privacy and security. Pupils will develop strategies for profile privacy, information sharing and how to stay safe while playing online. Pupils will also gain an understanding of the importance of asking permission before purchasing or accessing games online.
