Education for a connected world
On Safer Internet Day (6th February) the UK Council for Child Internet Safety (UKCCIS) published a framework to equip children and young people for digital life. Education for a connected world aims to identify the skills and competences that children and young people need to have at different ages and stages in order to be able to navigate the online world safely and responsibly.
The framework focusses specifically on eight different aspects of online safety education:
1. Self-image and identity
2. Online relationships
3. Online reputation
4. Online bullying
5. Managing information online
6. Health, well-being and lifestyle
7. Privacy and security
8. Copyright and ownership
The course will provide participants with:
- An overview of the current online safety landscape – the issues that children and young people are facing, latest developments from government (including implications of the Internet Safety Strategy which will be published in Spring 2018.)
- An overview of the framework and its contents.
- An opportunity to consider how the framework can be used in schools to underpin online safety education and support pupils, staff and parents
We will go through the framework in detail and discuss some of the research findings that underpin each of the eight aspects. There will also be opportunities to reflect on what schools are currently addressing and how the framework can help with any gaps.
