This webinar recording explores what is meant by e-safety and investigates why we, as teachers, should be concerned with it. The webinar includes activities to raise awareness in class and looks at how to approach digital tools in the best way with our young learners. This webinar took place on Safer Internet Day on Tuesday 7 February. 

This webinar clarifies what we mean by e-safety and why it is relevant in our young learner classrooms today. It suggests the need for integrating awareness-raising discussion in courses, looking at examples of common practice and how this can be improved. After summarising considerations teachers should make, we look at what teachers can do to successfully integrate digital platforms and applications in a safe way, with two specific examples of activities which can be used. We finish with a recap of key points so teachers feel more confident that they are providing safe online learning opportunities for their young learners.
