There are three key components to this new resource:
- a guide designed to support teachers personal use of social networking services, keeping themselves, their students, and their job safe.
- a checklist for those entering a school to assist and inform them in relation to technology use at home, at school and in the classroom.
- a matrix of resources – example teaching resources for use in class for different Key Stages, including resources from CEOP, the BBC and others.
The guide alos features video clips which could be used as part of staff induction or training. Although aimed at trainee teachers and NQTs, these resources would also support other areas of CPD and could be utilised to enhance other staff members awareness and understanding of e-Safety and professional practice.
These are online resources and can be found at http://www.childnet.com/kia/traineeteachers/, with the Guide and the Checklist also available as downloadable pdfs.
