The thinkuknow CybercafÃ© for Key Stage 2 pupils has been developed by CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection), alongside BECTA (The British Educational Communications and Technology Agency) and the Internet Proficiency Group. It aims to develop safe and discriminating behaviour for pupils to adopt when using the internet and other technologies.
Developed by teachers for teachers, the CybercafÃ© can be used safe in the knowledge that these free resources are appropriate for meeting whole-school policies relating to safeguarding, and are fit for use in the classroom as well as within the PSHE/ICT curriculum.
The resources include a teachersâ pack, which contains teaching activities and background information on new technologies, including advice and guidance on staying safe, lesson plans and pupilsâ worksheets.
There is also an interactive resource that uses activities to engage pupils through lessons covering the use of new technologies including email and mobile phones safely, as well as social networking sites and online profiles. The programme is aimed at 8 to 11 year olds and the resources below have been created for teachers working with them.
