Cwmbran High Digital Literacy Day

Tuesday 24 April 2018

USW, City Campus was full with young visitors on 27th March, when Year 7 pupils from Cwmbran High and Year 6 pupils from Nant Celyn and Woodlands Primaries came along to the Cwmbran High Digital Literacy Day.  During the morning the children took part in activities about keeping yourself safe online presented by USW lecturers and Gwent Police.  Topics such as keeping passwords safe and strong, cyber bullying and social engineering were covered.

Cwmbran High said “Thanks for your efforts of the day, the pupils enjoyed the day and there was some very useful information for all of us.”

Woodlands Primary said “Thank you for all your hard work organising the event today, our children learnt a lot of new information and were inspired by the location.”

Dr Eric Llewellyn, Deputy Head of Computing and Mathematics at USW said, “It is so important to equip children with the tools to enable them to stay safe online.  This is in keeping with our contribution to the Well-being of Future Generations Act, as working with much younger children will help the knowledge to spread to their families and teachers.”
