Thousands of kids will get their first smartphone this Christmas.  When children are older they are more likely to STOP-&-THINK before sharing an unsafe image.

 

The app SelfieCop can be of extra help for kids who need additional support. It encourages them to think-twice before taking or sharing risky photos.

 

Download for free at www.selfiecop.com

 

The app works in 2 ways:

1- Automatic anti-sexting alerts appear every time the child’s camera is activated.

2- Parents can be sent a copy of the child’s photos & videos to check them for safety.

Digital Learning at St Bernadette’s

 

I am currently evaluating how effectively we are currently using digital technologies at St Bernadette’s to support learning in the classroom and at home.   Teaching children how to use Digital Technologies effectively as part of their learning is essential in equipping them with the skills and knowledge required to work effectively in the 21st Century.  I would be extremely grateful if you would please take a couple of minutes to fill out a quick questionnaire about how well we are teaching the use of Digital Technologies at St Bernadette’s and providing us with feedback on how we can improve.

The online form can be accessed using this short link http://goo.gl/forms/BDihehW0cU

Responses will be collated and used to inform an action plan on Tuesday 10th November 2015.

Many thanks for your continued support.

Yours sincerely,

John Cloherty

The Larbert, Stenhousemuir and Torwood Community Council is working with Foundation Scotland to establish a local community benefit fund linked to the Tod Hill Wind Farm.

The Fund will be a community resource, designed  to support community-led activity that improves the area as a place to live, work and visit. At least £24,000 per annum will be available to the area for the operating lifetime of the wind farm. To maximise this opportunity, Community Enterprise has been appointed to design and facilitate a community consultation and planning process and produce a Community Plan. The Plan will help inform the Tod Hill Community Fund’s purpose and priorities but the Fund is not substantive enough to deliver everything that will be included in the Plan. So as well as being an opportunity for an exciting community conversation,  the Plan can be a great resource in our collective efforts to raise further funds for critical community projects.
