Managing Your Digital Footprint – from toddlers to teens

Posted by LibeRaCe on October 23, 2012

This morning Ofcom released their latest report – Children and Adults Media use and attitudes report 2012.
 
Did you know that - 
 

Over a third of 3-4 years olds are helped to go online using a desktop PC, laptop or netbook and 6% go online via a tablet computer!

Children who use the internet mostly alone comprise one in seven internet users aged 5-7 (14%), one in four aged 8-11 (24%) and over half of those aged 12-15 (55%)

While most children would tell someone if they encountered something inappropriate, a minority were unsure or would not tell anyone

Lack of confidence in using the internet is an issue for a number of parents, and the risks of grooming, cyber-bullying or access to inappropriate content are not always front-of-mind for many parents. 
 
The ESafety pages on Moodle developed and curated by the Library and Learning Technology team, will help to support tutors and learners with :
 
- Esafety/Digital Footprint Class resources (videos, discussion points, quizzes, handouts and crib sheets)
- Esafety handouts with top tips
- Sources to find support 
- Information for parents
- Esafety resources created by learners with disabilities and learning difficulties
- Esafety resources created by referred/excluded learners
- Safer online shopping information
- Spotting fakes and fraud online
- Basic media literacy awareness
 
We also add content regularly to our favourite E-Safety webpages list – http://delicious.com/llandrillo_library/esafety .
 
To arrange departmental staff development training on delivering Esafety, Digital Footprint or Social Media sessions, please contact the LLTS team directly.
