Safe Internet Day 2017 – Be the Change; Unite for a Better Internet
Safe Internet Day 2017 was celebrated on Tuesday 7th February at EFC. It is an annual event, which raises awareness of good online practice with the purpose of empowering learners to be creative, confident and resilient using online and digital technology.
This year at EFC, we focused on two key stages during the event: Creativity of Digital Technology was featured and exhibited in the Reception Area of the college and ‘Makey Makey’ workshops were held for the students in the Learning Lounge.
Exhibitions in Reception
Various interactive Games built with Makey-Makey, an electronic invention tool and toy that allows users to connect everyday objects to computer programs, attracted great interest from individual/groups of learners who tried the computer games which had been connected to flowers, aluminium balloons, plastic toys and staircases making them into interactive touchpad devices.
