I started writing a Moodle course for e-safety this week.

Moodle esafety course

I am authorised to deliver the CEOP materials but the course will be taught by another teacher as well so I cannot use these in the course. Instead I have gone for (lesson 1):

teach-ict.com e-safety quiz games

a social networking flash video

a Moodle quiz to identify who has accounts on various social networks

A Moodle assignment with a comprehension exercise on a cyber-bullying article from the BBC

I am now wondering where to go next. It is such a big field. The ThinkUKnow and CEOP reporting buttons are there, which we will have a look at, but what activities are best for the pupils to learn all about e-safety. I would rather it was less about the teacher and more about the pupil doing. Any ideas or resources?

  1. Dai,

    Great idea. If this was an offline course, I’d probably get them to start discussing their reactions to a series of scenarios related to e-saftey (what should Bob do if…)

    This could work well using a Moodle discussion forum, although I don’t know a) if the debate would move to fast in the context of a single lesson b) how comfortable teachers would be giving up the ability to overhear and jump in in quite the same way you can in a live environment.

    One to consider though.

    If I have any more ideas, I’ll be back :0)

  2. Thanks Dave.

    I have a few ‘what if’ scenario work sheets I was going to convert to Moodle quiz or Q&A forum. I would like to spend some time developing complex multiple choice answers where the subtleties might make the pupil think more, also provide opportunity for detailed/deeper feedback rather than correct or not. But time? You got any I can borrow?
