In the past decade there have been significant changes to technology and the way it is used in New Zealand schools. This has presented new challenges for educators in creating an environment where teachers and students are confident in the safe and secure use of technologies.
With the increasing availability of ultra-fast broadband in New Zealand, schools will face a more complex technical environment that demands an appropriate approach to online safety.
Ongoing staff and student education programmes are fundamental to keep pace with changing technology use in schools. Students need to be supported to build skills and knowledge to effectively manage challenge in cyberspace. Educators need to increase their capability to guide young people in building their own skills in keeping safe online.
This guidance is vital in young peoples acquisition of skills, but guidance is only effective when the guides themselves feel confident and capable enough to be able to assess the benefits and challenges of online activities and provide the appropriate support where needed.
The Kit's Teacher confidence survey has been designed to assess the level of confidence that educators have to provide this support to young people. It will provide a snapshot of the levels of confidence that a staff body has in this area, and the report that NetSafe will provide will give your school a comparison with national baseline data to give you an indication of areas that may require particular focus.This data can be used as a benchmark to measure the effectiveness of professional learning initiatives in these particular areas (See Kit steps 3 & 5)
