Safer Internet Day 2020 Video Project!
CyberSafeIreland is marking Safer Internet Day 2020 by launching two new pupil-led video projects made by 6th class children from St. Kevin’s NS, Sallynoggin, designed to encourage discussions in the classroom around healthy use of technology. Both videos were devised, written and performed by the pupils themselves, and made entirely on a smartphone to also highlight positive use of new technologies. The short films will be premiered in a whole school assembly in St. Kevin’s NS in Sallynoggin where they were created.
Dr Barry O’Leary, St.Kevin’s National School Principal said of the project:
“The kids really enjoyed the experience of devising and performing in the videos and were full of enthusiasm throughout the project. It provided a fantastic opportunity to tease out issues and really get them engaged in the topic of healthy use of technology, as well as demonstrating the creativity possible with only a smartphone. It is vital that all young people who are active online have the opportunity to have these kinds of discussions regularly both at home and in school.”
