The very idea of the Guide layer in the LGP model recognises the role that all guides play in suporting young people as they aquire the necessary skills to become succesful digital citizens. WHen we talk about guides it is easy to simply place teachers into that role (guides on the side) and put the onous on them to increase their skill and confidence levels in supporting young people.
But the idea of guides has always tried to encompass all guides, teachers, community leaders, peers and particularly parents.
When you consider the amount of time that young people spend online outside of school, it seems obvious that parents as highly important in the guiding process.
But where do parents go to improve their knowledge, to build there confidence? Research carried out by the ACMA in Australia identified that parents see the best channel for this type of support is direct from schools, or at least recommended by schools that their children are attending.
This short list of suggestions, is a series of managable, "bite sized" chunks of digital citizenship advice written by expert practitioners that schools can feed out to their community to try and help in this learning process. Perhaps their is something here that appeals to you, or seems to support what you are trying to do in your school.
