Google’s Safety Centre

On the 4th of October 2018 Google launched a new help centre dedicated to helping teachers educate students on online safety. The Google Safety Centre has resources and information to help teachers discuss important things such as data security, privacy controls, and online protection with their students. The site will eventually be available in more than 65 languages.

Last year Google surveyed over 200 teachers in the UK to learn about their experience with online safety in the classroom, they found that that teachers believe children should start learning about online safety at age seven, and 99% of the teachers we spoke to felt that online safety should be part of the curriculum, 37% of teachers admit they have witnessed an online safety issue occur while in school.

Here at Steadfast Training ltd we believe online safety is important for everyone, follow our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram pages for regular online safety tips, or follow our #websafewednesdays tag.
