Before the lesson
- To understand how apps can access our personal information and how to alter the permissions
Pupils should be taught to:
- Understand computer networks including the internet; how they can provide multiple services, such as the world wide web; and the opportunities they offer for communication and collaboration
- Use technology safely, respectfully and responsibly; recognise acceptable/unacceptable behaviour; identify a range of ways to report concerns about content and contact.
Pupils needing extra support: Can create a simple poster that illustrates the popular apps that were mentioned in the ‘Main event’. The teacher or TA should help the children find the app icons for them to draw onto their poster.
Pupils working at a greater depth: Can develop a ‘differences and similarities’ comparison between all three companies’ ‘app permissions’ information they research.
