Designed for the primary classroom
Planning Digital Technologies lessons doesn’t have to be complicated, or cost a fortune in fancy robotics equipment. The Tweeting Galah series is designed to work as its own standalone lessons... they are literally ready to just grab-n-go!
Created by an experienced educator, The Tweeting Galah is aligned with the Digital Technologies, Protective Behaviours, Health, English and ICT Capability curriculum. Suitable for primary school students, Years 1 - 6.
Each story addresses a contemporary cyber safety issue relevant to today’s children (Aesop's Fable-style). These issues include: posting online (digital footprint), online stranger danger, screen time balance, photo permissions, viewing inappropriate content, cyber bullying, gaming, trolling, online privacy and virtual learning. Each story concludes with reflection questions to guide classroom discussion - ensuring students have the chance to reflect on each topic.
