Become the Next eSafety Champion MOOC
The eSafety Label+ MOOC, starting on 21 October 2019, aims to support education professionals to create an online safety strategy tailored to their school’s needs in order to ensure their pupils learn and interact in a safer digital environment. How will this be achieved? Through an introduction to the concept of ‘eSafety strategy’ and a thorough analysis of the schools’ strengths and shortcomings. Participants will reflect upon and be better prepared to make informed decisions about a safer technological infrastructure, school policies and practices for their students. Moreover, the eSafety strategy developed throughout this MOOC will pave the way for their school to receive an eSafety Label! More info
