A number of students from RIC have qualified as Digital Leaders and are now planning to go into local schools to show children how to stay safe online.
Students from RIC have qualified as Digital Leaders meaning they are able to help others feel safe online. The students, Ryan (Year 10), Maria (Year 10), Alice (Year 9), Scarlett (Year 7) and Maia (Year 7) were presented with certificates and pin badges to complete their nationally recognised training.
Digital leaders is a national online training and learning platform built to train young people about online safety.
Students have built skills, expertise and confidence through completing online training during Digital Leader’s club. All Digital Leaders had to complete the seven core modules, ranging from social media skills to cyberbulling, to qualify as Digital Leaders.
Now students have completed initial training, they will design and deliver a range of activities in school from educating young people to creating educational resources. This could take the form of educational videos, booklets and talks to other students and parents.
Our leaders are currently devising an educational video and presentation to take into local primary schools to encourage younger students to stay safe online.
So, if you need any help with online safety, you know who to talk too!
