Internet Safety

When I read this post of Riverhouse4js, a student of this course last semester, it reminds me of my last professional placement. My mentor in my last placement told me that the student only allow to go on the websites which are set in the favourite web site symbol, the star-shaped symbol on the right end of the search bar. First thing I thought this is reasonable because it to protect the children from inappropriate websites. However, again, when it comes to creativity and what I have mentioned in this post about the importance of risk taking, I ask myself: “Is this killing creativity in using ICT?”. “Are we using internet safety as an excuse for our lack of effort in integrating ICTs in teaching and learning effectively and safely?”. ” How are we going to overcome this issue so that we do not stop our student from reaching to learning ICT creatively?”
