New opportunity for UK secondary schools engaged in PSHE, media literacy, citizenship education and countering online harms
The process aims:
- To measure change in participating students’ knowledge, skills and attitudes around digital citizenship;
- To measure change in participating students’ positive behaviour online.
We hope to engage schools of all types across the UK, helping them deliver the full Unit of Work from October to January 2022 and providing templates to collect both quantitative and qualitative data on learning outcomes. Activities include:
- Facilitating pre- and post-surveys, conducted online;
- Teaching all five modules of the Be Internet Citizens Unit of Work to min. one class (students aged 13-16)
- Supporting ISD’s accredited researcher to conduct focus groups with participating students and teachers.
Schools can also opt to participate in our brand new Applied Learning Module (ALM). The ALM will follow delivery of the Unit of Work, allowing students to apply their curriculum learnings in real-life contexts and demonstrate tangible advances in their digital citizenship competence.
Participating schools will receive £500 to support classroom resources and staff time. Additionally, they will be granted full access to the data analysis, providing granular insight on how their students responded to the curriculum and potential ways to develop Digital Citizenship teaching within their school body.
Deadline for responses to participate in Autumn Term: Thursday 21st October
Deadline for responses to participate in Winter Term: Friday 10th December
