All educators have a role in helping learners to develop their digital literacy skills and online behaviours. Indirectly with good use of ICT in Learning and more directly with specific education regarding e-safety. This might be a useful resource then for anyone not just those teaching Internet Safety. It’s on Glow the Scottish Schools Intranet so only those with a Glow account can access. In Highland if you need support for your Glow account please contact the ICT in Learning Team – Louise Jones or Andy Robb.

New TUK Resources

TUKBRAND NEW CEOP RESOURCE: The Thinkuknow Toolkit

 

On behalf on CEOP and the Thinkuknow Team

We’re delighted to announce the launch of the Thinkuknow Toolkit, with fifteen fun, engaging learning activities based on the 11-13 and 14+ areas of the website.

The Toolkit helps you transform the Thinkuknow website from a reference tool into an interactive resource. With clear practitioner guidance and engaging photocopiable learning materials, each activity gets young people thinking and talking about key issues related to sex, relationships and the internet, delivers safety messages, and encourages them to return to the website in their own time.

Topics include sexting, webcam, using social networks, inappropriate content and chatting with strangers online. Young people ‘speed friend’ fictional characters before finding out who they have really contacted online; debate the rights and wrongs of a media story about a celebrity whose nude selfies were leaked online; and design their own apps to help their peers stay safe.

You can download the Thinkuknow Toolkit now! You’ll find it under the Key Stage 3/4 tab in the Resources section of your online account atwww.thinkuknow.co.uk/teachers/resources.

Don’t forget you’ll find plenty more resources for use with children and young people aged 5 to 17, and with parents, at thinkuknow.co.uk/teachers.
