Family Learning Week - working with parents of primary children on social media
When I was at Longniddry a couple of weeks ago I was taken aback by the differences in knowledge and attitudes to net safety between the kids in Primaries 5, 6 and 7. So today I have been meeting with parents of the children to see how we can all move forward to make use of the net, particularly social networking and social media tools, even with these youngest internet users. The things we are talking about might only be for future reference for some parents while others already ahve social networking 10 year olds in their hands.
I've put a limited range of links together on my online bookmarks, but think that parents and teachers out there might have some other ideas on how parents of younger children can work and play with their children safely online - leave your ideas in the comments, please, to help us all :-)
