Linking to Safer Internet Day 2019, Year 5 discussed what is meant by consent for both the online and offline world.

We had different scenarios and examples of asking for consent including stroking a dog, sharing photos, and allowing apps to use your location. Each one brought up interesting questions and thoughts that showed that our technology has both positive and negative sides.

The most concerning area of ‘consent’  for us was the use of cookies whilst browsing the internet and AI devices -such as Alexa-which listens for certain words to be used, and collects audio data.
