The internet is becoming a fascinating and effective tool for teaching and learning, both at home and at school.
These websites can be used to teach the children about using the internet safely and responsibly:
The CyberCafé is an integral part of the Internet Proficiency Scheme developed to help teachers educate children on staying safe on the Internet. The scheme has been developed by Becta, The Child Explotation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP), the Department for Children, Schools and Family(DCSF, the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA) and Grid Learning Ltd / GridClub. The resource aims to develop a set of safe and discriminating behaviours for pupils to adopt when using the Internet and other technologies.
It is important to remember that if you allow your child internet access at home, parental supervision is recommended. Ideally, the computer screen should be in an easily viewable position in the family living area. A guide to online safety for children can be found here.
