Comments from schools who have run a day:

We held a Childnet Kidsmart activity day at Hagbourne C.E. Primary School which involved the Childnet team from London working with every year group helping them to understand the safety issues and positive uses of the internet and new technology. We then invited parents to a special evening seminar where we shared what had happened during the school day and Childnet gave very practical advice about young people using applications such as chat, Instant Messenger, mobiles etc. I was personally very impressed with the content, the way that the team differentiated the messages to the different age groups and the balanced approach which Childnet took. We were really encouraged at the way that the pupils responded to the issues and the parent's evaluation forms clearly showed the value of the seminar. I would recommend other schools to run a Kidsmart day and help both their pupils and parents. At the end of the day it is clear that children know much more about using these new technologies than we do. So it is vital that we as parents and teachers provide directed questioning in order to try to safeguard our children as they use it. The parent session provided some excellent strategies for doing this.
