A collection information on blogging in schools with links to useful resources in the form of a blog. Tags are used to categorise the information for ease of use. This blog is independent and doesn't endorse any particular services mentioned.
It is possible to embed some videos from the BBC into your blog. Not every video has the option but there is a symbol like this </> next to the ‘full screen’ button that copies the code to your clipboard if a story allows it.
There’s no particular reason for using this as an example, it was the first ’embeddable’ one I got to!
Terms and conditions are on their site, with an explanation of why not every video is available to embed.
Safe is a free programme of activities for schools to teach pupils about safe social networking.
There are two programmes, for ages 7-11 and 11-16 with resources modified for each group. Pupils are guided through the basics of social networking and having an online presence.
Schools can use their current online social network/VLE or set up a free account with Makewaves via the Safe website. Resources are free to download and there is an option to buy the resources in folders. When pupils have completed the course there are a series of rewards available depending upon how the school has chosen to complete the course.
In addition to resources, schools can also purchase reward badges and a Safe School Award Plaque to display.
