I have just made a ‘bit’. Not a big ‘bit’, just a little ‘bit’. And I’m hoping that it’s a bit useful to teachers who are helping students learn about digital citizenship. And you can make a ‘bit’, too.
‘Bits’ are the individual resources on Netsafe’s new site, Learn | Guide | Protect. The site is organised around three strands:
- “the skills students learn to keep themselves safe,
- the guidance they need from educators to learn how to manage challenges,
- the protective mechanisms schools can use to improve their immediate safety”.
The key to the site’s development lies in the fact that items are crowd-sourced. Anyone can make a resource—or ‘bit’—and assign it to one of the three strands. The items can be mixed, mashed and combined to suit learning contexts and schools’ needs.
