Be Internet Legends - New Digital Curriculum for Teachers

Andrew has provided an update on the “Be Internet Legends" programme, an internet safety initiative for children, which he has been promoting to local schools.

Andrew explains, "As I mentioned recently, I have been working with Google and Parent Zone to raise awareness of their “Be Internet Legends" internet safety programme, which I am pleased our local schools have taken part in.

"Google and Parent Zone have provided me with the latest update on their programme and I am pleased to inform local teachers that a new digital version of the Be Internet Legends Curriculum has now been made available online, in line with teacher feedback. I am informed that it is packed full of new and updated activities to help teachers deliver engaging and interesting online safety learning to their pupils - with a new focus on media literacy.

"The Be Internet Legends curriculum includes activities, lesson plans and expert guidance for teachers on all five pillars of the Legends code - Sharp, Alert, Secure, Kind and Brave - and a digital wellbeing module, with extra lesson plans to encourage pupils to reflect on screen time, healthy habits and their online/offline balance.

"The curriculum now includes a set of easy-to-navigate resources and interactive lesson plans to help teachers bring Be Internet Legends to life in the classroom. You can download it at parentzone.org.uk/curriculum."
