Due to the Easter holidays we just have one live course during April, Education for a Connected World – and it’s well worth signing up for! Read on to find out more…

What is ‘Education for a Connected World’?

In 2020, the Government published guidance for schools about teaching digital knowledge and skills, called ‘Education for a Connected World’.

The document supports one of the key aims of the government’s Internet Safety Strategy of supporting children to stay safe and make a positive contribution online, as well enabling teachers to develop effective strategies for understanding and handling online risks.

Our CPD session, Education for a Connected World, explores how the Life to the Full Primary programme has responded to this guidance. We explore how, through themes such as ‘Self-image and Identity’, ‘Online Relationships’ and ‘Health, Wellbeing and Lifestyle’, we aim to promote a connectedness where each individual can live life to the full.

What is the faith perspective on this?

In his message for the World Day of Social Communications in 2019, Pope Francis urged responsible use of the internet, saying it should be used to liberate not to entrap:

… the network we want, (is) a network created not to entrap, but to liberate, to protect a communion of people who are free. The Church herself is a network woven together by Eucharistic communion…by which each one clings to the Body of Christ, and welcomes others.

Pope Francis
