What does it involve?

The Festival is an opportunity for pupils and teachers to learn about Cyber Security and eSafety whilst experiencing how the latest Windows 10 solutions from Microsoft can help enhance the teaching and learning in the classroom.

The Festival moves at a fast pace and is hands-on from start to finish covering a range of activities designed by Tablet Academy qualified teachers. The activities in most cases are easy to replicate back in school* and are suitable for all pupils including gifted and talented and those from disengaged groups.

*may require investment in equipment.

How does it work?

An Cyber Safety Learning Festival is hosted for a day by a school or other organisation who agree to extend invitations to a number of local schools.

AM and PM Workshops

The day is split into two workshops, morning and afternoon, each lasting approximately 2.5 hours and covering the same content (approx. 9:30 - 12:00 and 12:45 - 15:00).

Pupils and Staff together

Up to 30 pupils from years 5, 6, 7 and 8 take part in each session (60 total) accompanied by staff from the host school and visiting schools.
