Year Five pupils at Holy Cross School in South Ockendon carried out focus group testing on the new Dot Com Digital journals with a senior executive from the software development company DataARt who are carrying out the project as part of their CSR.
Anton Bagrov joined Sharon Doughty and Neil Evans the founders of the Dot Com programme at Holy Cross School in South Ockendon in Thurrock . The journal will be launched in a pilot starting with the whole of year 5 after half term.
The journal has been created in a unique partnership between Essex Police, the Internet Intelligence and Investigations division of the National Police Chief Council, The Dot Com Charity and DataArt.
Discussions with the children even spread over lunch and pupils were excited by the journal and the prospect of playing cartoons and games as part of learning how to stay safe in the digital world.
