This is about Thinking Smart about the information and people you meet on the internet So we know the internet can be so helpful when we are researching things for school, or if a friend moves away, we can still stay in contact with him/her. But, we also know that there are times when we need to be careful online. This lesson looks at fake news and how to help Tadhg figure out what to trust and what not to trust when it comes to information online. We will also be looking at people online just like in the real world there are lovely people, but unfortunately there are some people online who may not be who they say they are.

This will give you top tips on how to recognise this and to know what to do if this happens to you .
