What do I get kids to do if there is an incident on a laptop?

Cyber safety and digital citizenship is an ongoing and integral part of a teachers day. There will be times that children bring up inappropriate images and search results even if you are filtered. 

There are also times when a child feels like they are being harassed with emails, or bullied through online conversations. 

There is a way you can empower them!
Its called screenshot.
This is a link to explain how to do it. 

If they take a screenshot they have recorded the incident and have the evidence they need. It can then become part of the documentation required to manage ongoing situations. 

Its one button to push and then the child can alert you to their dilemma and become empowered and in control of the situation.
