‘eSafety Label+: Become the next eSafety Champion’ is an Erasmus+ project aiming to mobilise and foster the exchange of knowledge and best practices among a wide community of European teachers and other school actors to better equip schools for a safe and responsible digital future.
Research report: Mapping online safety needs and priorities in education
The first output of the eSafety Label+ project has just been published. The report "Mapping online safety needs and priorities in education" identifies the key strengths and weaknesses of online safety across schools in Europe, as well as areas of improvement. In addition, it assesses the current certification process of eSafety Label and the impact of the initiative in the schools’ environment.
The report draws upon a quantitative research carried out among 1,150 members of the eSafety Label community and forms an evidence base for all further eSafety Label+ project activities.
A group of teachers and ICT coordinators from Greece, Portugal and the Czech Republic are participating in an ambassadors’ scheme that will allow them to become certified eSafety Champions, empowering them to become leaders in the promotion of a safe, responsible and positive use of ICT among schools, teachers and pupils. As a result of their training, they will develop new learning materials to inspire and engage teachers and pupils on online safety discussions.
