Teaching Digital Security

Safeguarding in schools

Every day this May, we’re bringing you another great little reason to head to #exabytes17. While the 7th of July might seem quite a way off, we think now’s the best time to start thinking about arranging cover to be released on the day itself.

Online safety is really a hot-button topic at the moment, particularly in the wake of the major WannaCry ransomware release, with a lot of people concerned about how to best stay safe online. This concern’s definitely been heavily felt in schools on a lot of levels, particularly when the Prevent Duty is brought up.

At #exabytes17, you can expect a lot of discussion about the best ways to ensure that students are kept safe online - with absolutely no one around to try and fear-sell a product or service. Our conference is all about giving teachers an environment in which they can explore and discover approaches they and their peers have used when it comes to technology in the classroom.

With over 30 sessions planned for #exabytes this year, we’ll be covering a lot of ground, from teaching digital literacy and the way that impacts on your students’ understanding of online security to a more physical side of things with hands-on sessions on Digital Making.

Along with that, we’re making sure that teachers get a fantastic environment to network in, building connections with their peers, and discovering how schools across the country handle their approach to digital security.

Tickets for #exabytes17 are available through our EventBrite page, and cost just £58.80 (dropping to £10 for Exa customers). Don’t miss out on the best edtech event this year!
