Internet Matters launches e-safety service for schools
With e-safety now firmly established on the curriculum at both primary and secondary school, the e-safety website internetmatters.org has created a dedicated area for schools which makes it easy to find some of the best resources for teaching e-safety from leading experts in the field.
Their research shows that 70% of parents look to schools for advice about keeping their children safe online, so they’ve also created a selection of resources to help schools promote online safety to parents with downloadable banners, posters, leaflets and age guides. There are also useful tools to use with parents at school for e-safety talks and parents evenings.
Finally, teachers will find some great ideas for videos, games and quizzes they can share with parents to do at home with their children. An example of this is a brand new interactive e-book app that Internet Matters has created with Childnet International of their storybook ‘Digiduck’s Big Decision’. Narrated by Sophie Ellis-Bextor and Janet Ellis, this will help younger children understand the importance of being a good online friend and allow parents to continue the conversation about online safety outside school.
