Technology is a vital part of both teacher’s and support staff’s, professional and personal lives. The following checklists, along with the ‘Social Networking guide for teachers and support staff’, have been designed to ensure that you are able to face these challenges whether at school or at home.


Childnet International

Childnet International is a registered UK charity that aims to make the internet a safe place for children and young people. Childnet works directly with children and young people from the ages of 3 to 18 on a weekly basis, as well as parents, carers, teachers and professionals, finding out about their real experiences online, and the positive things they are doing as well as sharing safety advice. Working directly with these audiences is important in helping to equip them to stay safe online and informs the resources that we develop for them. The conversations that Childnet has with them also helps to inform how the charity develops and responds to policy issues and the messages that they take to government and the internet industry about the real experiences of children and young people and what needs to be done to make them safer.
