Skills, characteristics and staying safe

Online safety education needs to be proactive rather than simply reactive and given the rate of change of technologies and services and with the steady drip feed of new crazes and avenues for children and young people to put themselves at risk, we cannot get away with just teaching about specific known hazards. I decided to try and compile a list or a mapping of personal & social skills that contribute towards e-safety, having been struck by the extent to which initiatives like SEAL (social and emotional aspects of learning) and PHSE are often dealing with things that lie at the heart making someone truly e-safe. It includes some links to associated resources and I hope it will prove a useful reference and communication tool.
