At The Bridge we understand the growing penetration and use of technology as a means of learning and education. Social networking has become an integral part of childrens lives. Children see it as a primary means for education, entertainment and information. However, there is a lack of tools and resources that can be relied upon to assure complete internet safety and security for children. At The Bridge, we work as a team dedicated towards empowering children so that they may benefit from the wide array of learning resources available online without becoming a victim to internet safety loopholes.
At The Bridge we train primary school students to use social media networks in a structured and responsible manner. Helping them to develop a deeply rooted sense of responsibility concerning the use of internet, we equip students with knowledge and skills that are to work to their advantage for the rest of their lives. At The Bridge, children receive education regarding maintaining an online profile that conforms to all standards of e-safety and internet security.
Digital literacy is the newfound dynamic in the field of alternative education and many schools lack resources and expertise to cope up with the rapidly changing technological landscape. This is particularly true in case of safe social networking and internet safety. Where social networking has made correspondence really easy between primary school children and teachers, it has also led to a lack of control over students activities on various online platforms. Primary school authorities are unable to monitor the use of social networks by children during out of school hours. This calls for measures to bridge the gap between internet safety and digital literacy, and The Bridge has emerged as a viable solution in this case.
The Bridge Safe Social Network was launched in 2012, and since then it have grown as a platform that is dedicated towards facilitating education through safe social networking. At The Bridge our key features include:
