Whats new, what’s changed, and how can you use the updated framework to help keep children safe in our ever-changing digital world?
Additions such as voice-activated searching, upskirting, social influencers and deepfakes, plus the use of banter and a more in-depth focus on digital consent, sexting-related technology and protected characteristics make Education for a Connected World – 2020 the ideal framework to use for your online-safety curriculum and whole-school approach.
Rather than write more about it, we met up for a chat with one of the authors to find out what it’s all about, what’s changed in the new edition and how it ties in with the new statutory RSHE curriculum.
So why not have a listen to Mubina in conversation with Penny Patterson from Havering School Improvement Services, sits on the UKCIS (UK Council for Internet Safety) Education Working Group with us. Penny was one of many experts who contributed to both this and the previous versions; she has been a longstanding friend of LGfL (and safeguarding board stalwart).
And then for further support on the same subject:
- Training (for LGfL schools) to prepare for the online elements of RSHE – we examine all aspects of online safety from the framework and latest guidance, provide an overview of resources, and prepare you to map these to your curriculum: safetraining.lgfl.net
- Online resources (for all schools) to support a whole school approach – search by topic, key stage and audience at saferesources.lgfl.net
- Policy guidance – safepolicies.lgfl.net
