Junior Safety Zones for the World Wide Web

Merlin John has recently written a article, published on the FutureLabs website considering how Primary Schools can use the internet as teaching tool whilst taking into account e-Safety considerations.

Merlin states how Primary Schools across the UK are “starting to try out secure, media-rich services that allow children to do everything that older students and adults are doing on sites like Flickr, YouTube and Facebook but without the concomitant risks”

The article contains case-studies from Primary schools using Web 2.0 technology such as Blogs, Social Networking etc to enhance learning in the classroom.

Are Primary schools in Kent following suit? We welcome any ideas and suggestions for sites you use in your classroom which you might consider to be a “Junior Safety Zone”.
