Education is embracing the internet and related technologies as they open new opportunities for everyone, promoting creativity and effective learning.
To use these technologies effectively requires an awareness of the benefits and risks, the development of new skills, and an understanding of their appropriate and effective use both in and outside of the classroom.
The e-safety section on our Schools website highlights the safety issues and provide practical information and advice for schools on how to use the technologies safely.
It covers the technologies that can support safe use of internet technologies, such as filtering systems and firewalls, as well as management issues such as developing acceptable use policies for both students and staff. We also have wide range of articles on teaching e-safety, from minimising online bullying to avoiding plagiarism, together with advice on evaluating web resources for use in learning and teaching.
