Playing IT safe

15th September 2006 at 01:00
It is a dangerous world, so children need to look after themselves. Keeping Myself Safe, a new software resource from Learning Curve Software, helps them to learn how.

Through 10 scenarios - including stranger danger, peer pressure, risk-taking, internet grooming, chatroom safety, domestic violence, sexual abuse and safety in new situations - the package promotes discussions and raises awareness.

Keeping Myself Safe also contains a toolkit of strategies, a range of pupil activities and a teacher's guide, says the Edinburgh-based company. It is designed to promote home-school partnerships.

Also launched at this year's show will be Picasso P4-P7 and Picasso S1-S2, new versions of the personal learning planning program that embodies key features of Assessment is for Learning.
