Phishing scams and other email frauds, hacking, “data harvesting” and identity theft are discussed together with ways of protecting online identity and privacy. Health and Safety Law and environmental issues such as the safe disposal of old computers are also discussed. Safety is discussed outside the realm of e-safety which is covered in greater detail in the Using computers safely, effectively and responsibly unit.

What people say...

Many thanks for continuing to improve and expand your excellent resources. I can’t begin to add up the time it has saved us.

Jules Hazzledine. Head of ICT & Business Studies, William Farr School

We had been looking around for some KS3 computing resources for some time.  However, we couldn't find any that were suitable and value for money. The PG Online units provided us with exactly what we were looking for to get our new computing curriculum up and running. Each unit is designed to provide a complete solution including; comprehensive lesson plans, editable presentations and an end of unit assessment. Purchasing these units have saved us valuable time and has helped us to create a curriculum which is both easy to follow and engaging.
