Ann Marie gave a talk about internet awareness, anti-bullying and the negative impact of certain apps. She was saying that you should learn how to use technology with your kids. She said that you shouldn’t block websites as then the children will want it more. She showed us ‘Aftermaths’ which is a website that you go on and solve maths problems before your granted access to social networking sites. The more you solve the more time you can have on your chosen website. She mentioned the three Cs; keep checking, keep communicating and keep current. She mentioned that even though ‘Snapchat ‘ is great if you have children that live away from you, there are also negative. People can use it as a way of ‘sexting’ and bullying.
