DL resources

  • There are some excellent eSafety resources from the Child Exploitation and Online Protection team at www.thinkuknow.co.uk. These are aimed at different age groups and there is some SEN specific material, however you may find it difficult to find age appropriate resources for older learners with severe learning difficulties.

  • South West Grid for Learning have created a bank of useful resources for teaching about Digital Literacy here.

  • The **X-Ray Goggles** tool from Mozilla is an excellent resource to look at validity of information. More able students can change elements of web pages, for example making their own BBC news report. This can lead to a discussion about how anybody can put information onto the World Wide Web, and how to identify trustworthy sources of information. (Thanks to James Winchester for this idea).

  • Childnet and Leicester City Council created a set of materials called Childnet STAR Toolkit, to assist in educating young people with ASD in secondary schools about the internet and online dangers.
