Introducing DigiDog!

We’ve got a new team member here at Parent Zone – DigiDog. 

Primary and prep schools that join our Digital Schools programme will receive a set of DigiDog activities designed to engage younger pupils in online safety and create their own policies for staying safe.

DigiDog will help your younger pupils think about the rules they have been taught for staying safe online and test their understanding of the basics of online safety. DigiDog and the accompanying activity pack support the following element of the computing curriculum:

‘Pupils should be able to use technology safely and respectfully, keeping personal information private; identify where to go for help and support when they have concerns about content or contact on the internet or other online technologies.’

Primary and prep schools joining us as a Digital School will get:

  • A set of classroom resources to explain the DigiDog story and teach online safety basics, including lesson plans, PowerPoint presentations and handouts.
  • A stuffed DigiDog toy. Your children will be able to take the dog home and create a DigiDog Diary explaining what they did together online and what they thought about before sharing their online world. This is a great activity to get parents involved in their child’s online safety activities.
  • An additional lesson plan all about writing DigiDog Training. In this lesson your pupils will learn how to write their own online safety rules for DigiDog.

If you’re a primary or prep school looking for a new approach to online safety, become a Digital Schools member today for access to DigiDog and all our other school resources.
