Children are now using technology and exploring the online world from a younger age. Thinkuknow are looking to develop a new resource to help build young children’s (aged 4-7) resilience online and give them the skills to explore all the digital world has to offer safely.
Thinkuknow are looking to develop a comprehensive picture of the online behaviour of 4-7 year olds and hope educators can help by completing a Professionals survey and by promoting the parent/carers survey to their community.
Professionals survey: Aimed at those working with children aged 4-7 years
Thinkuknow would like to hear from practitioners about what is most effective when educating children about online safety. Early Years and Primary school staff can complete the professionals survey here.
Parents/Carers survey: Aimed at parents/carers with children aged 4-7 years
Help Thinkuknow to gather as many parents/carers views as possible by sharing the survey with the parents you work with. Make sure they have their say about online safety and what works for their family. Complete the parents survey here.
Thinkuknow have suggested the following text to be shared with parents/carers via newsletters, emails, text services etc.
“Our [school/organisation – please edit as appropriate] uses the Thinkuknow education programme to help your child learn about staying safe online. Please complete this survey to have your say about what you would like to see in their next resource for 4 to 7 year olds. https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/parentscarers4-7s ”
The surveys will be open until Friday 8th December 2017.
