Cyber Safety
Using the internet we can find information that is useful for our school work, we can have fun by playing games and quizzes and we can chat to our friends.

Storyboards are visual representations of what your end user (learner) will see on the computer screen. They are small sketches of and tiny versions of what your screens will look like.

Student Work

Self Evaluation

Copy the following statements and complete for homework:
What were the specific jobs that you did when your group was making the P6 Video?

What were the most difficult parts of making/editing the video and what did you do to over come the problems?

Which part of your own version of the video do you think was the most effective at putting your ideas across to the P6 students?

What changes would you make to your video ( not the way you worked) if you had the chance to do it again?

Give yourself a final score out of 10 for each of the following headings:
  • Planning and team working - (storyboard, script, job sharing)
  • Technical competence - (how well you filmed, collected resources and edited your film)
  • Fitness for purpose - (does the film present the information clearly about internet safety / cyber bullying for P6 students)
