E-Safety - understanding how encryption works

E-Safety - understanding how encryption works

I’ve created this resource for a group of learners with learning difficulties. Following a review where the language used was too complicated I’ve added a simplified version and the pub file (in comic sans), as well as two simple questionnaires… Staying safe online and how encryption works is hard to explain, so I’ve tried to demonstrate these in a simple and accessible way. The resource contains 7 pages, and it takes the learners through a short and simple journey in understanding how to keep away from fraudulent online content. The resource can be used as part of an E-Safety lesson or in an assembly.

Be smart with your smartphone. Say goodbye to phone bill shocks and credit calamities.

Be smart with your smartphone. Say goodbye to phone bill shocks and credit calamities.

Target audience: 8 - 11 year olds Give your students a lesson they asked for: on money and internet safety. Together with Childnet we asked students across the UK what they need help with and internet safety came up. We then wrote this fun and practical lesson plan that will show young people how it’s possible to spend money through a smartphone, how this can happen and what to watch out for to not end up with unexpected charges. From TV voting for their favourites and in-app purchases to mobile gaming and online ads, you will help your students learn how to think critically about money and internet safety. You will get: • a Teacher’s Pack that tells you all you need to know about the topic, step by step instructions for delivering the lesson and ideas for fun extra activities • a Powerpoint presentation for you to use, with plenty of examples of good or services that might cost real money, charged to their phone bill • a Students’ Pack with worksheets and information card, with a special extra: a Test an adult quiz and diploma. We are the Phone-paid Services Authority, the UK regulator for content, goods and services that get charged to a phone bill. We asked Childnet to help us create this lesson because they’ve been working for years with schools across the UK. Their resources have been used by thousands of teachers here on TES so you’re guaranteed an excellent lesson plan.

The Industrial Revolution

The Industrial Revolution

A simple website research/inquiring challenge - students use the Ducksters website to help answer the questions. First I introduced the topic of the Industrial Revolution (Our unit of study is on Technology so I felt this is an era of history that needs to be taught as it changed our World). I had my class (Grade 3) do this using one Chrome book between 2 but it would work just as well as an individual research activity. The questions were written to not only improve reading skills, but also encourage some deeper thinking of the impact of this significant era in history.
