  • Year 3 

    Advantages of communicating electronically are that it is available at any time, instant and global. Disadvantages include easier misunderstandings, people pretending to be someone they are not, lack of privacy (once something is published online, it cannot be removed) and a threat to personal safety (access to personal information). Concerns should be reported to a trusted adult.


  • Year 3 Explain the advantages and disadvantages of communicating electronically and strategies for preventing issues.
