Free Resource for Teaching Staff who specialise in PSHE, SMSC, Safeguarding, ICT, English, History, Politics and RE
The Institute for Strategic Dialogue (ISD) would like to invite your school to send up to five teachers to their free teacher training session as part of ISD and Google’s Be Internet Citizens project on Saturday 30th June in East London (exact location TBC). ISD is an international counter-hate and extremism organisation who deliver cutting-edge programmes which respond to the rising challenges to tolerance and communal cohesion. The Education programme strives to build young people’s resilience to social issues and empower them to become emotionally mature critical thinkers.
Be Internet Citizens is a nationwide project that ISD runs collaboratively with Google, as part of YouTube’s ‘Creators for Change’ initiative. It seeks to teach young people vital digital citizenship skills to enable them to become positive users of a safe and exciting web. It enjoyed a hugely successful first phase in 2017, which you can read about in our report here. The training will cover how to deliver their engaging and interactive lessons on recognising and responding to fake news, understanding the difference between hate speech and free speech, and identifying echo chambers and filter bubbles, and more.
The workshop is completely free, with travel costs of up to £20 covered for each teacher in attendance. The day will run from 8.30am to 2.30pm, and will include a complimentary breakfast and lunch. Staff who attend will also receive a free tote bag with a printed copy of the unit of work and classroom decorations, including branded stickers and a poster.
