This year the theme for Safer Internet Day was
Create, connect and share respect: A better internet starts with you!
This started some very good discussion among pupils on how technology effects lives and what would life be like without social media? Do we use too much social media? What is digital well-being? Is social media affecting our well-being?
Pupils also discussed what they thought was good social media practice and how to effectively respond to adverse experiences with social media. The main learning point most pupils gained from this exercise was to think how they could have a better balance with technology use and what areas they could improve in to achieve this that would have positive effects on their overall well-being.
