A Glow login is required.

This session aims to raise your awareness of the opportunities to plan for, and teach, internet safety with literacy and English. It will explore why we need to develop learners’ Internet Safety awareness of information literacy so that they can interpret the web in a Safer, Smarter and Kinder way.

It will:

  • explore what we see, read, and hear online
  • suggest resources and activities that you can use in your class
  • identify the links between information literacy skills, such as analysing and evaluating, and internet safety and opportunities to assess the learning

There will be an opportunity to share your ideas on information literacy and internet safety learning.

There will be an evaluation at the end of the session.

06 May, 16:00 – 17:00, Royal Academy of Engineering ‘Connecting STEM Teachers’

The Royal Academy of Engineering ‘Connecting STEM Teachers’ programme (CST) aims to create a national network of support for teachers across all STEM subjects, ensuring they have the knowledge and confidence to engage a greater number and wider spectrum of school students with STEM in their school.

The programme provides free STEM project resources and training, professional development and enhanced learning experiences for teachers attending network meetings.

Those registering for the webinar will receive a sample set of the Academy’s recent resource – Engineering in a Pandemic.

Other national STEM resources will also be presented at the session, with a follow up meeting in June to share ideas with colleagues from other schools.

This is a two-part session and a full class set of resources will be sent to you or your school between the two meetings.

Engineering in a Pandemic resources have been developed with school teachers and engineers to lead pupils through a series of theory and practical activities that explore the vital role of the engineering community in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The activities are linked to discovering engineering disciplines, creating solutions to problems, recognising properties of materials and how product design and development have been influenced by changing lifestyles.

These resources provide teaching and learning activities for use in STEM clubs, for a STEM challenge day or to enhance and add context to the Curriculum (whether it be delivered in school or at home).

An important aim of this resource is to enable teachers to engage their pupils with STEM through hands-on activity and stimulating engineering contexts.
