Dangers of the Internet
Peryglon y Rhyngrwyd
Issues that your child may encounter when using
the internet can be categorised as follows:
• Conduct/Ymddygiad
Children must understand the impact of their
online activity. They must understand that when
using the internet, they must not share any
personal information with strangers.
Dangers of the Internet

• Content/Cynnwys
Some online content is not suitable for children
and may be hurtful or harmful. This is true for
content accessed through social networks,
online games, blogs and websites. As well as
obvious harmful content such as adult themed
websites, children must also be aware of the
consequences of downloading illegal or
copyrighted content such as music.
Dangers of the Internet
Peryglon y Rhyngrwyd
• Contact/Cyswllt
It is important for children to realise that people
online can hide behind a screen and can pretend
to be anyone they like. Friends lists or addresses
must be regularly checked and edited to ensure
children are contacting people they actually
know. Children must also understand the
importance of telling a trusted adult if they have
been the victim of online abuse.
Dangers of the Internet
Peryglon y Rhyngrwyd
• Commercialism/Masnacheiddiwch:
Young people’s enjoyment and privacy online can
sometimes be exploited by advertising and
marketing schemes which could lead to children
unintentionally spending money. Children must
understand to keep their personal information
private, how to block pop-ups and spam emails,
how to turn off ‘in-app’ purchasing where possible
and only use a family email addresses when filling
in registrations or online forms.

5 SMART Tips to Help Children Stay
Safe Online
• Safe – Keep safe by not giving out personal information i.e.
phone number, email, passwords
• Meet – Don’t meet up with strangers met online. Remember
that ‘Online Friends’ are still strangers.
• Accepting – Accepting emails, messages, files etc from
people you don’t know can lead to problems i.e. safety or
viruses!
• Reliable – People may lie about who they are, their age etc
online. Only chat to people you know.
• Tell – Tell a parent, carer or trusted adult if something feels
wrong or you think you’re being abused/bullied online.
What is HWB+?
Beth ydy HWB+?
•
•
•
•
•
•
A bilingual learning platform for every school in Wales;
Blogs;
Wikis;
Discussion forums;
Surveys;
Free access to Office 365 (Microsoft Word/PowerPoint/
Excel/One Note);
• Free use of Encyclopaedia Britannica;
• Access school work from home via an internet device;
• A completely safe way for children to use the internet.
Bilingual Platform
• HWB+ will be in Welsh for the Welsh stream classes and
English for the English stream classes.
• If a parent or child would prefer to use the opposite language
then it can be changed at the top of the page.
Blogs
• A blog is a tool for
individuals or groups
of users to record
opinions, information
and views on a
regular basis.
• Learners and teachers
can use blogs to
create pieces of
writing that can be
viewed and
commented upon by
a wider audience
(users within your
Hwb+ site).
Wikis
• A wiki is an ideal place for learners to collaborate on literacybased activities within Hwb+. A wiki is a page that can be
edited by multiple users and there are many examples of
wikis on the internet, the most famous being Wikipedia.
Discussion Forums
• The discussion area of Hwb+ is similar to other online discussion
forums. In class and year sites, teachers and learners can create
discussion threads that others can respond to.
• Staff and learners can reply to other people’s posts in a discussion
and images and links can also be added as necessary to complement
the written work
Surveys
• Surveys can be
created by teachers
to collect responses
from their learners.
• The results can be
analysed individually
and in a graphical
summary. A variety
of different question
types can be used to
make the process of
responding easier
and more effective.
Access to Office 365
• Free access to Microsoft Office from school
and at home
• Click here to use
Office 365 tools
• Use One Drive for
up to 1TB of storage
Encyclopaedia Britannica
Using HWB+ from home
Using HWB from home is easy. Children will just need their username and
password to log in at http://hwb.wales.gov.uk/
A useful tool from home is the ‘Homework Drop Box’. This tool enables children to
upload anything they’ve done from home onto HWB for their teacher to see.
Worry Box
A safe way to use the internet
• HWB is completely safe as long as all parties:
parents, children and teachers stick to the home
school agreement. Each child must have their
own agreement signed, not shared with a sibling.
• As you have seen this evening, children are at
danger when using the internet. HWB provides
them with a platform to use the internet safely
whilst learning at the same time!
HWB+
• Conduct/Ymddygiad
Children must understand the impact of their
online activity. They must understand that when
using the internet, they must not share any
personal information with strangers.
By using HWB+, children will learn to keep their
username and password safe. They will not be
able to share information with children outside
of Llanrhaeadr school.
HWB+
• Content/Cynnwys
Some online content is not suitable for children
and may be hurtful or harmful. This is true for
content accessed through social networks,
online games, blogs and websites.
HWB+ provides a safe way to understand and
use blogs, networks and websites. There is no
harmful content available.

It is important for children to realise that people

HWB+ only involves children in Llanrhaeadr school.
They can only contact each other. They do have
email access but this is monitored by school staff on
a regular basis as well as any other actions made on
HWB+.
