The Internet is part of our daily lives and gives us all access to a wealth of information, education and recreational resources and activities.



The use of technology brings exciting new opportunities, which undoubtedly come with some risk.



It is important that we help children and adults working in our schools to be aware of the risks and encourage them to adopt safe and appropriate behaviour when online.

 

 

Don't forget we offer customised commission work for your establishment. Also available nationwide.

By the time children start school, 73% use a tablet, laptop or computer device, 29% own their own device and by the age of 4yrs they are considered to be self sufficient on at least one of these devices. (Ofcom 2016)

 

Warwickshire ICTDS have been working over the last academic year with teachers from EYFS to devise a series of activities to help with the Online Safety conversation.  These activities have been mapped to the early learning goals, the new Digital Framework and will help children as they get more exposure online at school and at home.  These activities will easily fit in with activities you already carry out, being a substitute rather than an extra area to cover.

 

The full day training includes an OSBOX containing all of the resources required, teacher guidance, support leaflets for parents and some advice for staff is the outcome of this collaboration.  

Delegates have an exciting day carrying out all the activities, discussing alternative approaches to delivery and considering how it all fits into the activities you already carry out.  You will take a box back to school for delivery the next day!

Learning outcomes

 Consider different approaches to online safety messages

  • Awareness of online safety issues

  • Knowledge of the Framework and how it maps to EYFS ELG

  • An opportunity to work through all of the suggested activities

  • An awareness of the activities and some idea of suggested delivery

 

OSBOX Only

You can also purchase an OSBOX without attending the training for £50.

 

An arrangement will be made for collection. 

Please place your order with Jane Key by email to key.j2@welearn365.com

We will endeavour to get the boxes dropped off for you, there may be a slight delay depending on location.  Delivery by post can be arranged at an extra cost.  Collection can be made from Building 3, Ansell Way, Saltisford, Warwick CV34 4UL by prior arrangement.
