5 Reflection

At the beginning of this week, you explored issues around your online safety. In your Digital plan you made some notes on steps you can take to stay safe online. You now also realise the importance of your digital well-being and maintaining a good balance between your online and offline activities. You have been given good advice on how to communicate online and you’ve been introduced to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

You should also now have a better understanding of how copyright and Creative Commons (CC) licences work. You can use your knowledge to protect your own rights and stay within the law when you use someone else’s material. When you want to find resources you can use freely, look for ones displaying a CC licence. If you upload your own work to the internet, think about protecting your rights with a CC licence.
