Luke Pollard MP Member of Parliament for Plymouth Sutton and Devonport
Luke will be joining the ‘Be Internet Legends’ virtual teacher training provided to teachers from Plymouth, Sutton and Devonport.
Aimed at Key Stage 2 pupils, Be Internet Legends is an interactive educational programme from Google and Parent Zone which helps children become safer and more confident explorers of the online world. Developed in close collaboration with experts, children and schools, Be Internet Legends focuses on five internet safety pillars:
- Being Sharp about what they share
- Being Alert to scams and phishing attacks
- Being Secure by creating strong passwords and looking after their personal information
- Being Kind to others online
- Being Brave by talking to trusted adults when they come across something they’re not sure about.
The workshops are designed to help teachers gain a better understanding of the online safety landscape, and to show them how Be Internet Legends resources can be used, both in class and during remote learning, to teach their pupils about how to become safer online. The session will cover topics such as looking after personal information, spotting scams and finding a healthy online/offline balance.
Luke will be joining the session taking place on Friday 21 May, 10:00 am – 11:30 am, to speak briefly to the teachers and answer a couple of questions.
Luke would be delighted if primary school teachers from Plymouth, Sutton and Devonport could attend and they can register for the event here: https://parentzone.org.uk/workshop
