Internet Safety and Responsible Use in the Secondary School

Youngsters are living in the digital world but many staff in school struggle to understand how youngsters use technology beyond the classroom. With the barriers between home and school about to be broken down through the use of mobile technology, how do we cope with personal, portable technology equipped pupils? Is our current practice of locking down internet access on school computers the best way of helping our youngsters learn how to use the internet safely and responsibly?

Internet Safety and Responsible Use for Early Years and Child Minders

Esafety messages need to start early and should be part of the advice and guidance that is a natural part of helping a young child learn about keeping themselves safe. Real life stranger danger, crossing the road, playing in the park – we all feel confident in not just watching for danger, but also in talking to young children about their own safety.  Esafety is not about our own use of technology, but understanding children’s use of technology and weaving straightforward safety messages into everyday activity. This workshop will look at the risks, issues and benefits for younger children.

The session will highlight the lessons learnt, both good and bad, and offer tips on where to start when it comes to using digital technology for engagement
