ERW Region – Two brand new ground-breaking e-Safety tools launch in Wales

South West Grid for Learning25th Feb and 26th Feb – Don’t miss this opportunity!

Over the past year or so, South West Grid for Learning (part of the UK Safer Internet Centre) has been working in close partnership with Welsh Government to look at where schools need support in terms of e-Safety. As a result of our findings we have developed two new e-Safety resources for Welsh schools, launched on 22 October by Minister of Education and Skills Huw Lewis.

The first of these resources is 360 safe Cymru – a Welsh version of our award-winning original resource, which enables schools to self-review their e-Safety provision and guides them through the improvement process.

DIGITAL LITERACY AND CITIZENSHIPThe second is the Digital Literacy Resource – a programme of lesson plans and information to teach digital literacy skills, which are vital life skills for young people today, across all key stages.

We will be holding introductory events to showcase these resources to teachers in Wales so we invite you to come along and spread the word to colleagues from other local schools. The events will be 2 hours long and will provide teachers with an overview of each of the tools, how they work and how they can support e-safety school improvement. Both tools are completely free to use online and are available in both English and Welsh languages. Don’t miss this opportunity!

Swansea, Waterfront Community Church: Feb 25th, 10:00-12:00am

Carmarthen, Canolfan Griffith Jones: Feb 25th, 2:00-4:00pm
