I’ve pulled together some of the ideas that were shared at last week's online conference which I think are great ways to actively promote eSafety. The highlight for me was learning how other colleges have supported SID in the past and hearing all the great ideas for promoting SID 21014 locally and raise awareness of this important issue.
Safeguarding learners & staff, and providing them with the skills to safeguard themselves when using this technology, is a vital part of the education that organisations should give to learners and their staff members.

Staff and students increasingly expect to be able to access and use the full range of their institution’s ICT facilities and resources via their own mobile devices or mobile devices provided by their institution. Meantime the institution’s requirement is that security of systems and information is maintained and that user policies on access to systems are adhered to despite the shift in control from institution to user. Recognising these risks and managing them will help encourage responsible use as well as confidence in legal compliance.

Some great e-safety resources for adult learners, partly funded by Jisc - you can find them and download from www.jourm.ac.uk too and searching for Worcester College. This one's about using social networks but there are other scenarios too.
Web sleuth Tom Ilube sprung a surprise on two mother and daughter pairs each with a passion for using social media. He caused a few raised eyebrows when he shared the information he gleaned from their online activity in just a couple of hours.
