Internet LiteracyThe Internet Literacy Handbook, published by the Council of Europe and mentioned in our recent post on the Wild Web Woods is a very useful handbook for schools. It is well worth printing a copy and putting it in the staff room for easy access and possibly making parents aware of it too. This is the third version of the book and it has added lots of information about using social spaces:

The latest version suggests advice on how to use social websites like MySpace, Facebook or Friendster, and the Web 2.0. Thousands of young people and children are today interacting with their friends, classmates and people with common hobbies or interests, frequently publishing personal data and photographs. Sharing this information is a great opportunity for communication with others, but implies risks that users must know how to avoid.”

There is lots of useful information for staff, governors and parents too. As it has a set of clearly labelled fact sheets it is easy to dip into for various aspects of internet safety and simple information about the many different aspects of the web.
