Technology plays an increasingly important role in teaching and learning and in the lives of children and young people. It can clearly have a very positive impact and be used to motivate and inspire change.
However, the abuse and misuse of technology, treating others with disrespect, and the spreading of false and dangerous information continues to damage the lives of pupils and teachers, adversely affecting their health and wellbeing. It is important to make space so that conversations about this can take place.
NASUWT continues to campaign for greater protection for pupils and teachers from cyber-bullying and harassment online and provides advice, guidance and training to help create safer work places and learning environments.
NASUWT is proud to support Safer Internet Day, which provides the opportunity to celebrate the positive benefits of the internet while raising awareness of the dangers.
