The online safety MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) is part of the Better Internet for Kids (BIK) project, delivered in partnership with the Insafe network of Safer Internet Centres with funding provided by the European Commission's Connecting Europe Facility (CEF). The course aims to empower primary and secondary teachers and give them a better understanding of the opportunities, risks and challenges presented to children and young people, and their parents and teachers, in the online world of the 21st century. Teachers will learn about a variety of topics such as media literacy, cyberbullying, online relationships, sexting, online hate speech and radicalisation, and will be provided with high-quality resources to address these issues. On this course, teachers will receive advice from experts and peers, as well as concrete suggestions about who to turn to when encountering an issue online and how to report a problem (to helplines and/or support services, as well as some of the main social networking sites). The MOOC will employ a variety of hands-on activities and will provide access to a range of support materials, while also encouraging participants to share their own best practice. The MOOC will run from 10 April 2017 until 12 May 2017. Find out more from and register online on the European Schoolnet Academy.
