What are the learning objectives of these resources?

The learning resources for 3-7 years are based on the story ‘Digiduck and the Magic Castle’ which is available here.

To support schools in fitting Safer Internet Day activities into their online safety curriculum, we have provided learning outcomes where relevant.

These have been taken from the free, non-statutory Education for a Connected World framework and can also be mapped against curricula or programmes of study that reflect your context.
