Web Safe

Your students should be able to use the internet to its full potential with confidence and the knowledge of the risks.

Global Investor Simulations wants to help ensure that any students using the internet follow safety guidelines to ensure they are not exposed to any of the potential risks associated with internet use.

There is a wide range of information and government based guidelines aimed at keeping children safe while using the internet. We would encourage all children, parents and guardians to study these guidelines and follow the safety advice that they give.

  • Get Safe Online and the Safer Internet campaign will help you protect yourself against internet threats. The site is sponsored by government and leading businesses working together to provide a free, public service. Visit www.getsafeonline.org and www.saferinternet.org/ for further information.
  • If you are a parent or carer and want to find out what you need to know to keep your students safe when they use the internet, visit www.thinkuknow.co.uk
  • The GetNetWise coalition wants internet users to be only "one click away" from the resources they need to make informed decisions about their and their family's use of the Internet. Visit www.getnetwise.org 
  • There are many tools available that parents and teachers can employ to guide children to safe and rewarding online experiences. Visit www.kids.getnetwise.org/tools/

"In the Dealing Room simulation our students used their reasoning, logic and mathematical skills to buy and sell shares. They made links between the demand, the supply and the price of a share.  This activity enabled students to use their mathematical skills in a real life situation. It was excellent.”
