Description/Abstract

Based upon research across 4 United Kingdom higher education institutions (HEI), recommendations are made regarding the support for e-safety provision in initial teacher education (ITE). The analysis is based on: the expert evaluation of a number of e-safety resources; development of an online evaluation form; presenting e-safety sessions to 400 trainee teachers; presenting further resources online and capturing over 73,000 words of comments. Some trainee teachers expressed degrees of naivety with regard to e-safety, both positive and negative comments were made and a range of trainee attitudes were expressed. The report concludes that there is a need for e-safety training within teacher training programmes. The DVD Jenny’s Story proved to be a most stimulating resource and some revisions to make the narrative focus upon trainee teacher’s needs are recommended. Implementing online portals to present advice for tutors, activities for trainees, some classroom resources and information for further study is seen to be an effective way forward
