Kristen Lassiter's curator insight, November 5, 2013 10:35 PM

This is something to look into for my own library. It is so important that today's students learn how to use the Internet correctly and safely. The Digital Passport may be a great tool to teach students about Internet use.

Deborah Fillman's curator insight, November 6, 2013 5:06 PM

Love the idea of teaching kids digital "self-defense," rather than focusing on erecting barriers they might see as challenges to overcome, or "problems" to solve. They not only need to guard against bullies and predators, but also that  that they have a "digital footprint" that will follow them throughout their lives. 

 

Tina Jameson's curator insight, November 7, 2013 5:07 PM

Prepare students for their online future: this freely available online tool allows students to 'play' and work their way through different levels, building up vital understanding of 'digital footprints' and cyber safety in the process.  Seems to be aimed at a junior primary to middle school level.

 

This article explains how one Librarian has used the tool successfully, and provides links to the 'Digital Passport' program.

New ACER report: What the Staff in Australia's Schools survey tell us about teachers working in school libraries


Via lyn_hay
Lourense Das's insight:
This research report by ACER draws upon the national Staff in Australia's School survey data that is now being collected every 3 years. One of the findings of most concern is the number of teachers working in school libraries who do not have a library qualification. Unfortunately the survey does not specifically ask whether participants hold a dual qualification in teacher librarianship. This would provide a more accurate picture of the status of teacher librarian positions in Australia's schools.
