      Hi Claire,  

      Thanks for your hard work on the St Albans School reflective summary!  There are a few key elements missing, my best advice (so as not to overwhelm you with too much info), is to read through the reflective summary checklist, as all my suggestions come straight from there.


      If you need any assistance please let me know, I am happy to help!  Smile

      Cheers, Tamara Bell (Blended eLearning Facilitator for the CCC Cluster)

      Hi Brenda

      I know the frustration of arranging a parent information evening and have a poor turnout, but I think you are right in identifyng that more work needs to be done to  create a culture where  schools are working in partnership with parents to promote  safe and responsible behavior in cyberspace. I have seen schools  invite  students to participate in a parent evening  to  present their own ideas and strategies for keeping themselves safe online.  It  has been a successful strategy to open up   an ongoing  dialogue with  the community.  NetSafe is  happy to support schools with this approach.  Here's  more information

      It is great to hear the student voice about cybersafety and digital citizenship, Thanks
