A couple of years ago, we worked with Childnet to make the Know IT All series available – a set of CD-ROM resources and matching website – to help teachers, families (and last year, trainee teachers) – to advise children about online safety. In the end, 1 million copies of the CD-ROM were snapped up by schools to hand out to parents at online safety evenings, and they haven’t been available for a little while.
So I was pleased when I got a note to say that they are now available again, with updates and new languages:
Childnet International is delighted to announce that the Know IT All for parents CDRom is available again – all 1 million copies of the earlier version were ordered and distributed in less than 6 months – and it has been updated to include fresh content on new and significant issues including social networking, cyberbullying and reporting. The summary of this award winning resource is now available in 9 languages with the inclusion of Welsh in this version in addition to new British Sign Language content for children.
You can see the resources online on the Childnet website, or order the CD in bulk quantities* by calling 0845 60 222 60 quoting reference 00308-2007CD0-EN
* Hmm, the website says it is only for “maintained schools”. I believe that children who go to private schools need online safety help too, so if you’re reading this from an independent school, perhaps give your local state school a ring and ask them to order some for you!
