We want to hear your voice! Regional Think Tanks - July 2010

Naace Think Tank - we want to hear your voice!
Regional Naace Think Tanks took place up and down the country in the last two weeks in July. The purpose of these events was to open up discussions and collectively share our thoughts about the future direction of ICT in Education.

Our aim was to work together and plan concise key messages – deciding who needs to hear them and what action we want them to take. Our aim is to build a strategy (and practical products) for defending the place of ICT in Education – and to ensure this is shared with as many people as possible.

Each Think Tank produced a variety of discussions and debates - many of which were centered around the pre-set questions below:
• ICT IS Important - Do we agree? Why and how is it important?
• What do we need to do?
• What are our Key Messages? (The USP of ICT in a learning environment)
• Who are the audience? And who needs to hear what?
• What do we want those who hear our message to do? How do we provoke this reaction?
• Building a Strategy (and Practical Products) for defending the place of ICT in Education - What should it include?
• Naace is about community - how can we build the effectiveness of that community so that our VOICE is heard and effective?

All attendees were asked to come prepared to share a one or two minute (max) nano presentation using any one of the above questions as a theme for that presentation. If you would like to share your presentation with Naace members please contact bernadette.brooks@naace.co.uk.

Naace Think Tanks took place throughout July at three locations:
Wednesday 21st July – Bradford - Challenge CLC
Monday 26th July – Bristol Region - Ramada Bristol City
Wednesday 28th July – London Region - Scholastic , Euston

Press Release - Schools must take the lead in helping young people deal with online dangers - 22nd August 2013

The new esafety briefing from Ofsted highlights why schools should take the lead on esafety. Naace can see clearly how some schools are successfully helping their pupils stay safe. These schools engage the young people in the esafety process and they ensure school systems are not 'locked down', so that pupils can gain experience of how to stay safe online when not in school. The Ofsted briefing reflects this saying "Pupils were more vulnerable overall when schools used locked down systems because they were not given enough opportunities to learn how to assess and manage risk for themselves."
