Over the last week students have been encouraged to think again about the benefits, but also the pitfalls of new technologies. Mr Flaxman delivered a series of assemblies to all Year groups, asking students to consider their own social media profile and what it says to employers. Increasingly employers are now using social media profiles as a part of their selection process. What does yours say about you?
Students were also given strategies to protect themselves and others, while safely using the internet and social media. Information from the assembly and advice on student safety is available here.
