Scottish Schools Educating Children about Online Safety.
We have been working within Scottish schools for the last 6 months and are very excited that the feedback is so positive.
Gooseberry Planet is an exciting game based tool for promoting e safety. It has given our children the opportunity to participate in a range of differentiated games while at the same time developing their knowledge of how to keep safe on line. The resource is supported by materials and detailed lesson plans for teachers and is suitable for use across the school. Our pupils are really enjoying using it.”-Janice MacRae, HT at Balnain Primary
“Our Digital Leaders have really enjoyed piloting Gooseberry Planet and have been introducing the resource to the other classes and it has received a positive response from teachers and pupils alike. Pupils from P4-7 have shown great enthusiasm towards the Gooseberry Planet game and have been becoming quite competitive! The game allows children to have fun whilst also learning about E-Safety through questions they need to answer as the game progresses. We have used the game as a follow-up after our main lesson/activity. Gooseberry Planet provides a range of differentiated lesson plans and worksheets covering a wide variety of E-Safety issues, such as Junk Email, Passwords, Online Security, Sexting, Location Sharing, Keeping Healthy Online etc. On the whole, a great E-Safety resource for pupils and teachers alike”-Alison McPherson, CT at Milton of Leys Primary
