As young people are growing up in a digital world it is imperative that they learn the benefits that technology has to offer and develop a critical awareness of their own and other’s online behaviour. They must develop effective strategies for keeping safe and making a positive contribution online.
The Mr Andrews Online Creative Computing Curriculum aims to support young people to be safe, healthy and succeed online. The projects cover eight different aspects of online safety education (see below) for pupils in key stages 1 and 2. The Education for a Connected World framework ‘aims to support and broaden the provision of online education, so that it is empowering, builds resilience and effects positive cultural change. The objectives promote the development of safe and appropriate long-term behaviours, and supports educators in shaping the culture within their setting and beyond.’
