Children will be children – pushing boundaries and taking risks. At a public swimming pool we have gates, put up signs, have lifeguards and shallow ends, but we also teach children how to swim” (Byron, 2008, p.2).

  30. 30. Physical computing? Definition: Physical computing, in the broadest sense, means building interactive physical systems by the use of software and hardware that can sense and respond to the analog world. While this definition is broad enough to encompass things such as smart automotive traffic control systems or factory automation processes, it is not commonly used to describe them. In the broad sense, physical computing is a creative framework for understanding human beings' relationship to the digital world. Wikipedia, 4 November, 2014

Editor's Notes

  • Where are these stats from?
  • Ofsted
    RaceOnline evidence cited by Ofted demonstrates that children with internet access at
    home attain higher exam results by two grades.

  • Pip
    Ofcom report that younger children are increasingly using social networking sites as evidenced by the
    rise of usage by those aged 5 –7 in the UK from 7% in 2009 to 23% in 2010. This is largely driven by sites like Club Penguin and Moshi Monsters and minecraft rather than age restricted sites like Facebook

    Children can play games using computers, smartphones and games consoles. Often the purpose is to network, cooperate and communicate with others, thereby seamlessly encouraging young people to engage with people they don't know or trust in the real world

    As a result, the traditional ‘stranger danger’ messages that have been taught to children have become incompatible and unrealistic in the digital world.

    However, club penguin, amied at pre-teens put a lot of effort into keeping their sites safe for kids. It requires parents to give permission for their kids to access most of the site's features, and they offer varying degrees of parent control over kids' day-to-day use. Has filters set to exclude inappropriate words or personal information. Moderated around the clock and kids can always click on the Moderator button present on the screen to report something.

    If children are allowed to play games without supervision, it is important that they only play games that are the appropriate age. - games such as Call of Duty comes with an age restriction due to the violence.

  • grooming
    cyber- bullying in all forms
    identity theft (including ‘frape’ (hacking Facebook profiles) and sharing passwords

    Some offenders use the internet to meet children online. either to start a relationship that leads to inappropriate online behaviour or to meet for the purposes of contact sexual abuse. There can also be exchange of illegal images.

    Typically online offenders use social networks or similar to meet children before moving into private, unmoderated chat environments or online messaging. This can mean deception, such as pretending to be a child, manipulation, bribery and threats.

    Grooming - how to stop it:

    From offender interviews in the EU Online Grooming Project, the key features of young people’s resilience were identified as:
    ability to fend off approach they considered weird
    understanding safety messages
    feeling confident about rejecting advances and informing others
    coming from a more secure background

    Ways you can help:
    Educate and empower the children with who you work by teaching them of the potential risks of online grooming using the thinkuknow resources
    Inform parents and carers about the risks and how they can protect
    Encourage children to get help if they have concerns
  • Lis
  • Discuss

  • pornography - talk to your designated child protection officer, talk to young people about responsible behaviour, log the incident on your incident logs or report forms
    hateful / racist material - Professionals have a duty to deal with any instances where children are viewing this kind of material
    self-harm - rise in the number of sites of this kind in recent years, promoting unhealthy messages about body image etc.
    illegal activity
    online advertising - talk to children to develop skills to tell the difference between informative content and advertising, block sites.
    gambling - it is illegal for children under the age of 18 to gamble in the uk but the prevalence of online gambling increases children’s exposure to these sites. - talk to children about the realities of gambling, its addictive nature and that fat that most people do not win.

    also referred to as SGII (self generated indecent images)
    copyright (little care or consideration for intellectual property and ownership such as music and film)
  • School email address fine.
  • Argus Paper 2013
    A Woodingdean headmaster reported his own pupils to Facebook after discovering children as young as eight were using the site.
    He asked Facebook to delete profiles belonging to underage children – and the firm agreed
    Mr Whitfield said it was “crucial” that children were prevented from using the site for their own protection.
    He said: “These kids simply do not have the capacity yet to deal with the dangers that are out there online. We’ve all heard about the possible exploitation and abuse they can encounter.
    the mother of an ex-pupil at Woodingdean, called the police when she started receiving abusive messages from a girl at the school.
    She said it was “100% a good idea” for teachers to inform Facebook when they discovered an underage pupil online.
    “I’m glad the headteacher has taken this into his own hands and is acting to protect the children.”
    But founder of the Brighton-based charity CyberSmile, said teachers should be educating young people about online dangers rather than banning them from Facebook.
    He said: “I can understand why teachers would do something like this, but I’m not sure it’s their role. The kids will just open other accounts under a different name anyway.
  • The es policy should incorp an AUP that is understood by staff, pupils and parents
