Safe Searching on YouTube

Following on from the post earlier about reporting illegal or concerning content to the Internet Watch Foundation, I happened to find out about this seriously good little clip from my good colleagues in Falkirk, link to their fabulous Curriculum Support Team here. The short clip is great for supporting teachers, parents / carers and pupils about using YouTube. It gives options for searching safely, reminding folks about local authority filters  and how to flag unsuitable content.

In Highland, to support learning and teaching, YouTube is openly available for all teachers and educators on our Local Authority network. For all pupils, primary and secondary, we have made available the category of YouTube ‘Education’. For more information on YouTube Edu please click here.

Thanks to Stuart Lennie in Falkirk for sharing this with us!
