Virtually Safe:

Preparing School Staff for the Implementation of a School-Wide Online Safety Initiative

Stephen Fessey

Year of posting: 2011


The initiative set out in this article shows the first stage of a process of developing existing e-learning practices within a secondary school. The school, working with the author, designed an e-safety programme with a blended approach to learning which involves 'the thoughtful integration of classroom face-to-face learning practices with e-learning experiences.' (Griffin, D., Mitchell, D. and Thompson, 2009, p8)) The online safety programme had two objectives: 1) To raise awareness of e-safety amongst staff and pupils and (2) to seek to increase the use of the school’s VLE. Staff needed to be trained up on this new approach and so the initiative discussed in this chapter focused on the training of staff in the use of a VLE before the programme’s roll out to enable them to deliver an online safety programme for pupils via the school’s Virtual Learning Environment (VLE).
