New resource from Childnet: Know It All for Primary Schools

A new resource from Childnet International is now available:  Know IT All for Primary Schools. This  resource has been produced specifically for the primary sector with support from Becta, the TDA and the UK Council for Child Internet Safety; KIA for Primary Schools aims to engage with primary aged children and all those working with them.

The resource has 2 main components:

1) A DVD for children with a film animation, ‘The adventures of Kara, Winston and the SMART crew’. The five episodes feature the latest technologies, updated e-safety advice and seek to empower all children to make good decisions online. The resource has been designed so that as many children as possible can get the most out of it. There are optional subtitles, a BSL version of the SMART rules, the SMART rules in Widgit Symbols, and the animation will soon be made available in Clicker (an inclusive writing and multimedia tool, which offers curriculum access and a high level of support for children with a range of diverse needs).

 2) A Selection of Video tutorials for school staff form the content of the second resource, a CD ROM made up of 5 chapters designed to support the development of effective e-safety knowledge, policies and practice. We all know how important it is for everyone to have the opportunity to really understand the importance of internet safety and these tutorials seek to educate and provide useful links for schools looking to build on their internet safety provision.

This resource is available to order from The DCSF for FREE, (Tel 0845 60 222 60 Reference number: 00321 – 2009CDO – EN) Or alternatively you can view the content online here
