ICT in Schools Newsletter Issue 9 of an occasional series In this issue: E-safety E-safety National Archives on Flickr Visual search tool Purple Mash NDRB E-safety audit Web 2.0 tools Free book download

Once again training can be offered from the Child Exploitation and Online Protection centre (CEOP) to KS3/4 children. These are new materials from CEOP that deal with current issues. A number of schools take the opportunity to give this to children entering KS3 each year and would say that it really hits the spot. I am happy to discuss what might be offered to other age groups and would welcome the opportunity to talk to staff, governors and parents. Contact me at rob.ellis@iow.gov.uk

National Archives on Flickr There is an excellent collection of historical images that can usually be used with no issues relating to copyright.

Visual Search Tool www.boolify.org is a visual Boolean search tool. It really is a great help in understanding the logic of searching.

Purple Mash Without in any way endorsing a product I know that many of the Island’s primary schools use 2Simple so you might be interested to look at their online presence. http://www.purplemash.com/

NDRB For your information the National Digital Resource Bank is a source of well priced resources which we might well want to look at together.
