If your agents (class) choose to accept this mission...
They will be taken on an adventure with Detective Dot to explore how the internet works, how data is shared and how to use technology in a way that’s safe, responsible and positive.
Detective Dot works for the CIA (Children's Intelligence Agency) and wants to investigate the internet to find out if it is the most secure way to send messages. She is also on the look out for an alternative network, and wonders if the Wood Wide Web maybe suitable!
For the first part of the mission (lesson plan), agents take a look at the World Wide Web and find out how information is sent via the internet and are also encouraged to consider online safety. In the second part they embark on an investigation to discover how trees communicate. The mission concludes by comparing both networks!
It's a fantastic activity to do all year round, but you might want to tie it in with Safer Internet Day on 5th February 2019.
Detective Dot has provided you with...
A range of curriculum-linked resources including; a lesson plan and activity sheets (with alternative for students with SEN), an information pack, assembly PPT and super top secret Children's Intelligence Agency Letter to help recruit new members and make sure they successfully complete their mission!
