The Scottish Government (2017) states: “Every child and young person has an age appropriate and evolving understanding of the opportunities and risks which exist in the online world.”

This is defined within these outcomes:

  • Children and young people are aware of their rights and responsibilities in the online world
  • Children and young people are resilient and are equipped to help themselves and their peers
  • Children and young people are able to identify when they, or their peers, are at risk, and know what to do if they spot something

what makes an engaging cris lesson?

3. What Makes an Engaging CRIS Lesson?

“Ensuring the elements of effective teaching are present – for
example clear explanations, scaffolding and feedback – is more
important than how or when they are provided.” Education Endowment Foundation (2020)

 

A good lesson is a good lesson, regardless of curricular area. HGIOS (4th edition) makes clear that high engaging learning, quality teaching and effective assessment, will improve educational outcomes for all learners.

road graphic showing progress from consuming content to creating then communicating it

As with any other area of the curriculum, in CRIS learning the context should be meaningful and relevant to the leaders – for many children and young people the internet and web are routine aspects of their lives already. Therefore, learners should be given the opportunity to share what they already know about the internet and web and the educators can use effective questioning and engaging activities to spark the learners curiosity about CRIS even further.

As educators we may need to develop our own knowledge and understanding of CRIS in order to support and challenge our learners’ thinking, and to make the contexts relevant and meaningful.

Finally, assessing the learners’ progress is vital to identify next steps and improve their educational outcomes. There is certainly scope to use formative assessment as learners learn, summative quizzes to check their knowledge and understanding recall but also to assess their ability to apply their learning in new contexts, such as with new apps, devices or curricular areas.

This lessons explains what the internet and world wide web are, with opportunities for learners to engager with research, share opinions and apply their learning.

CRIS in Health and Wellbeing

Cyber Resilience and Internet Safety (CRIS) learning shares many links with Health and Wellbeing (HWB) and the experiences and outcomes can be bundled very neatly together in planning. Cyber Resilience learning explores themes such as keeping your device safe and overcoming setbacks to reputation and finance. Internet Safety develops learners knowledge and understanding of keeping themselves safer, making smarter decisions and being kinder to themselves and others. By planning CRIS and HWB learning that complements one another provides contextual, engaging and meaningful lessons for children and young people.

These are the slides from the HWB webinar:

1. What is Cyber Resilience?

The Scottish Government (2015) states that: “Cyber resilience is being able to prepare for, withstand, rapidly recover and learn from deliberate attacks or accidental events in the online world. Cyber security is a key element of being resilient, but cyber resilient people and organisations recognise that being safe online goes far beyond just technical measures. By building understanding of cyber risks and threats, they are able to take the appropriate measures to stay safe and get the most from being online.”

 

Cyber resilience resources

The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) is the UK agency responsible for identifying cyber risks and attacks, combatting cyber crime and providing guidance and information to the public.

STRONGER PASSWORDS

The advice from the National Cyber Security Centre for the UK is clear on what makes a stronger password: THREE RANDOM WORDS.

This PowerPoint can be used as a lesson to teach learners about creating stronger passwords. It is aimed at upper primary learners but could easily be adapted to younger and older learners. Consider using this lesson when your learners next need to change their passwords, such as at the start of term.

Financial Education

In the UK, we spend more money online per capita than any other nation. So, if our learners are spending money online – how are you supporting them to be as safe and secure as possible? What threats are they likely to face when spending money online?
