E-safety training on Safer Internet Day
One of our teaching consultants, Raj Panchal, delivered a full day of e-safety training at a school in Oxfordshire on Safer Internet Day yesterday.
The session took the form of lessons for the pupils during the day, take-home tips for parents and a twilight teacher training session attended by teachers from the host school and from several other local schools.
Pupils learned about the various uses of the internet and how personal information is captured along with the acceptable use of social networks and smart phones. Raj also highlighted acceptable ways to communicate online and what children should do if they come into contact with upsetting or inappropriate content online.
Teachers were shown the importance of e-safety, legislation requirements and how to construct e-safety policies and computer usage guidelines. They were also provided with useful websites and resources.
All attendees left the session feeling better informed about e-safety which neatly ties into Safer Internet Day’s mission to “create a better internet together”.
