Sitting in Second Life (SL) ending a few weeks of e-Safety training with my colleague Carol. We are “celebrating” by watching my favourite SL machima (Watch the Worlds)
Watch it now – you really should – it will cheer you up!
Well, it’s the eve of the first Oxon Virtual training session in SL!
A select band of guinea pigs has been assembled and will (SL permitting) get together in world to start our e-Safety training session… This is scheduled to cover a few weeks, over 4 sessions. Evaluation will follow and then, maybe, a full and official launch OR SL obscurity…
I spent a LONG day with the lovely police people of CEOP (the Child Exploitation Online Protection team) in London yesterday. The upshot? yes I am still “at large” and also, I am proud to announce, now a CEOP Ambassador. I hope anybody wandering across this blog should already understand CEOP’s role, and now as an ambassador, I can help them by training teachers to become trainers so that they can confidently help young people stay e-safe!
As Steve (you know how you are) said, “The internet is a wonderful place, you can’t turn off the internet, instead we need to empower young people to stay in control.”
