Information session about the eSafety label
Are you aware about what schools do regarding eSafety? How many do you think are on track with data security, information literacy, IT infrastructure, controlled use of mobile devices and cyberbullying? Do you know that 6 out of 10 teachers have not received training for ICT use in their classrooms?

European Schoolnet organises an information session about the eSafety label initiative on 10 June in Brussels at 5.30 pm. You can follow the event on twitter (#eSafetyLabel) and via web-stream (www.ustream.tv/channel/european-schoolnet).

Recognising the growing needs of schools for assistance to manage their use of technology, a number of leading companies (Liberty Global, Microsoft, Telefonica etc.) and European Education Ministries have decided to join forces with European Schoolnet to address the gap in a multi-stakeholder consortium. This joint commitment has given birth to the eSafety labela European-wide accreditation and support service for schools.

eSafety label today:
  • More than 1.000 teachers and school heads across 22 European countries already committed to improving eSafety in their schools. 
  • More than 260 schools already received the eSafety Label. 
  • More than 200.000 pupils are safer in their school because of the eSafety Label. 
During the meeting, eSafety label stakeholders will highlight the importance of the label at the political level, share insights from their school’s perspective, and present results and future plans at European level.

The agenda includes contributions from:
  • Xavier Prats Monné, Director-General of DG Education and Culture 
  • Jan de Craemer, Flemish Ministry of Education 
  • Janice Richardson and Marc Durando, European Schoolnet
  • Steven Opsomer, teacher who received an eSafety label

BACKGROUND INFORMATION

The eSafety Label (www.esafetylabel.eu), a European-wide accreditation and support service for schools, has been set up by European Schoolnet with the aim of providing teachers, school heads and ICT coordinators with assistance and guidance on online safety issues. The eSafety Label pilot project was launched on Safer Internet Day 2012 (7 February). The three major steps of eSafety Label activities are: 

1) Accreditation: Schools can review their own eSafety practices against internationally-agreed standards. When they put forward evidence of their practice, they can be accredited as an eSafety-certified school. On completion of the self-assessment process, they will receive a personalised action plan to enable them to develop further their level of eSafety practice. They can also see where their school stands compared to other schools in their own country and abroad.

2) Resources: The portal provides schools with an ever-growing set of resources: eSafety advice and guidance, fact sheets, checklists and templates. 

3) Online community: Users and experts exchange tips, resources, advice and information on eSafety issues, help each other and share examples of effective practice.
