Our Learning Hub recently received this email from a preschool. We’re not sure that the preschool knows they have sent the message yet. From the content we guess they have been in touch with us before or had ECA’s Learning Hub in their contact list, which is nice to know.
The message shows certain skills too. Cap lock had been deployed for instance. And ‘sent from my ipad’ was still intact although a little buried. Could be an example of emerging literacy too. The words ‘I’ll’, ‘ok’ and ‘No’ appeared. It could also be an example of what happens when children get their hands on unprotected digital devices. (At least we think it was sent by a child or children.)
Time for attention to security. Take a moment to set a password and check security settings on your digital devices. It doesn’t take long. Just as it doesn’t take long for a young child to access email, the internet and other data on a digital device.
Check our previous post Three Ways to get smart and stay smart online for more on passwords. Perhaps the children already know how to do it and can show you.
