Google experts visit Cottesmore Academy in Rutland to speak about internet safety
Experts from Google have visited Cottesmore Academy to teach them about internet safety.
Google research has shown that 96 per cent of teachers believe that children should learn about online safety at home and in school.
To help teachers and parents educate their pupils about staying safe online, Google launched Be Internet Legends, an educational programme aimed at seven to 11-year-olds to help them be safe, confident explorers of the online world – through online platforms, teaching resources, face-to-face workshops and assemblies, and free training resources to over 19,000 UK teachers.
Children at Cottesmore Academy were also shown Interland – a fun-filled adventure game to make learning about online safety fun and informative. The children learned about avoiding hackers, phishers and bullies practising the skills learnt with the programme.
“We were delighted to visit Cottesmore Academy to help teach children about how to Be Internet Legends,”said Rosie Luff, public policy manager at Google UK.
