What do you feel are the most important things teachers need to know about e-safety?
What do you see as the biggest challenges facing schools / teachers around e-safety and protecting children and young people?
I think anonymous online bullying is the biggest challenge.
What are the most important skills children need to learn around digital literacy?
What measures need to be taken to improve digital literacy in the classroom?
Teachers need to be trained on how to teach digital literacy and e-safety.
In the future what are your predictions around digital education?
I predict and I really hope that project-based learning will be the emphasis of digital education in the future: where students have the freedom to pursue projects that are relevant to them and that have a positive social impact. I also predict (and hope) that students will become more aware of and more sensitive to other cultures by engaging online with other people around the world.
