  CHILD PROTECTION IN EDUCATION
Posted by: daisySimpson - 12-22-2018, 12:29 PM - Forum: Student Safety Issues - No Replies

Child protection in education refers to the principles and policies adopted by the school to protect the rights of the children to avoid them from getting abused while availing education. This has become a prime focus in the education field because many grave incidents of child abuse have occurred which has made the children afraid from attending school or have even taken their lives. Various government-run policies have been formed for protecting children while getting an education so that their life is properly safeguarded. The lack of potential measures in protecting children during education creates a psychological pressure in the minds of children making them prone to adopting mental disorder. 

In 2016, it is seen that in the UK nearly 58,000 children attending education through various platforms are getting abused and in dire need of protection to safeguard their lives for a better future. In most cases, the children are abused at school by the teachers as well as their peers. For instance, in one of the cases in the UK, a student was thrashed and beaten by his peers at school because he was of black origin. It is estimated that in every ten seconds in the US a child abuse is reported to occur mainly at the educational institution. Moreover, it is estimated that 3.6 million children face child abuse in the US. Thus, to avoid such incident child protection is required to be the prime focus in education for developing better life prospect for the students. 

There are various ways which can be adopted to ensure child protection in education which is as follows:

  • Effective implementation of education policies and framework
The first step towards ensuring child protection in education is the implementation of effective child protection policies and framework by the educational institutions. The framework is required to be made in accordance with the legislative information provided by the government in relation to child protection. Moreover, the educational institutions require setting effective rules for the way to provide education to the teachers as well as the administrative staffs who deals with the student to behave properly so that the children's rights are appropriately protected. The institutions need to adopt the policy of “spare the rod” while educating the children to provide them protection from physical abuse experienced during their learning process. Proper leadership is required to be maintained in a successful and sustainable implementation of the policies and framework for child protection in education. Moreover, a proper screening process is required to be mentioned within the child protection framework while recruiting education staffs in the institution for providing education to the children. This is because the process will ensure that the recruited educational staffs are not previously involved in any form of child abuse or harm thus ensuring protection to the children.
   
  • Proper training of educational staff
In the education field, the teachers are the ones who have direct access to the children most of the times. Moreover, the children are seen to spend most of their time at various educational institutions while interacting with the teachers. Thus, to effectively provide protection to the children in the educational field it is required to provide proper knowledge through training to the teachers. This is because the teachers are always directly linked with the children and thus are able to identify the proper signs and symptoms of abuse faced by the children. Moreover, the training will also help them to report the abuse at the right time and to the right individuals so that effective and timely action can be taken for proper protection to the children. The educational staff required to be trained to make them student-friendly so that they can manage the students without abusing them. This is because many instances have been seen where the students are abused by the teachers within the educational institution resulting in loss of child protection.  The teachers need to be student-friendly so that the children can also report to them about any form of abuse faced within the institution so that effective protection can be applied. The training is to be done with the help of social service providers who are trained in providing effective child protection. This is needed so that the information provided in the training sessions is authentic and serve to fulfill the purpose for which it is framed.

Educating children through campaigns

In order to implement proper child protection in education, the children along with their peers are to be provided lesson at school to manage themselves and be alerted to report any form of an abusive situation faced by them. Thus, the development of campaigns to educate the children regarding safety management is required to protect children from abuse helping in executing effective child protection. This is because the children are provided a lesson in this campaign regarding personal safety skills to effectively act to gain protection while studying from any unlawful activities. The safety campaigns also help to provide lessons to the peers, those may be involved in the harmful activity, to refrain from abuse thus ensuring the protection of the children in education. Many researchers have reported that after peers, those are involved in disrupting the child protection are provided effective education through the campaigns, they are seen to act positively in treating the children fairly. The campaigns also help to create an effective child protection environment as it provides a lesson to control the risk factors which are mainly involved in hindering the situation of child protection in education.
  • Monitoring and Review
The child protection in education is also able to be controlled by organising effective monitoring and reviewing policies by the educational institutions. This is because the monitoring and reviewing services help to inform whether the implemented policies and regulation by the institutions are effectively maintained or not to provide protection to the children. Moreover, it helps to identify what are aspects which are required to be added in the policies so that a holistic protective environment of education can be created for the children to provide them successful protection from abuse by the teachers or peers. The monitoring also helps to take immediate protective actions against any wrong occurring to create hindrance in child protection.
  • Create a Child protection committee
The formation of a child protection committee in educational institution helps to create effective results in protecting children from any form of harm or abuse. This is because the committee executes effective policy maintenance within the institution along with keeping a close view of the teaching ways of the professionals so that no legislations are violated. Moreover, the committee also executes weekly survey and interview with the children so that issues resulting in harm and abuse causing hindrance in child protection within the education can be appropriately identified. The committee also frames better strategies for controlling child protection in education to create a risk-free environment for the children to study.
  • Online reporting forums 
Many children are seen to feel shy to report against violation of their protection due to the fear of getting more intensely abused as a result of their identity revealed. Thus, creating online forums for reporting any form of harm to the children helps in providing complaint against the abuse. This assists to take immediate action and helps in creating a protective environment for the children. In case the children are unable to report, they can also take help from their parents in reporting in the forum of a non-protective situation in education.
 
  • Collaboration  and Consultation 
The consultation and collaboration with the educational staff, children and their parents help in maintaining a protective environment in education. This is because the obligation involved in an educational environment is effectively understood and policies are farmed through collaborative participation. The collaborations are to be formed by providing information through newsletters, information evenings, notice board and others to the parents of the children. Moreover, discussion groups are created which results in providing ideas regarding the way innovative and protective policies can be framed for the children.
  • Timely reporting
In order to maintain the effective child protecting the environment in education, proper, timely reporting services are needed to be maintained to inform about abuse of violation of rights. This is because with timely reporting the seriousness of the issues can be effectively acknowledged and proper steps can be taken to ensure immediate protection to the child.
  • Parental Involvement
The parents of the children are required to be involved in assisting to create a protective environment for them while pursuing studies in the educational field. This is because children are more intricately involved with the parents in their growing years. Thus, it is easy for the parents to know whether their child is facing abuse or harm while pursuing education. The identification leads to protect the children because effective policies and framework are then used for the child to award them a protective environment in education. Moreover, in homeschooling, it is seen that the parents are involved in the abusive treatment of the child leading them to face a non-protective environment in education. Thus, to resolve this, the parents need to attend the local child protection program so that they can adopt effective qualities and use the lessons in educating their children during homeschooling thus helping to protect the child from getting abused. 

Apart from performing the following strategies, it is the key responsibility of the teachers to ensure protection for children by developing a non-discriminatory environment in education. This means that the children with disability are to be treated at par with the normal child while providing education. Moreover, the teachers must educate the children that they are a unified race of people so that the peers respect their friends from other communities resulting in creating a protective environment for the children. The teacher also needs to be patient while teaching the children so that no abusive environment is built thus ensuring to provide protection in education.

  Classroom-style ultra short throw projectors for home theater?
Posted by: Williamhawk - 12-05-2017, 09:43 AM - Forum: Technology In The Classroom - No Replies

hello,

I have a large room and wall to project on, but I plan to keep my screen around 100" as I either hope to build one myself with the DIY blackout cloth or to buy a decent pull-down screen. My budget is about $500.

There's been a bit of talk about these newer short throw and ultra short throw projectors, which I really like the idea to keep shadows low. While looking for a projector though, they can easily be well over my $500 budget new! I happened to come across some used school smart board projectors locally though, which are for sale at about $150-300 each. They are Epson Powerlite 480's and Hitachi CP-AW250N's. The specs on paper seem to make these sound like good, cheap home theater projectors, but I know that specs on paper could be different than real world experience!

Does anyone here have experience with these smart board types of ultra-short throw projectors, or any other similar models? 

Please help.
Thanks!

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

  Disable Component Dragging Touch UI
Posted by: Williamhawk - 12-05-2017, 09:39 AM - Forum: Technology In The Classroom - Replies (1)

hello,

It looks like when you LClick on a component in the Touch UI, it automatically triggers a "dragging" action for that component. We are running into issues with this behavior.
 
Components are being added to their appropriate section/parsys. Once the component is there, a user attempts to click on the component to bring up the Edit Bar in order to perform some action on the component (eg. open the dialog for the component). Since LClick is triggering a "dragging" action even with NO mouse movement, there are times the default "dragging" action mistakenly moves a component from one parsys into a neighboring one.


Please help.
Thanks!

  Inspecting e-safety: an update
Posted by: Leesajohnson - 11-21-2017, 01:20 PM - Forum: Student Safety Issues - No Replies

Schools are facing problems in training their staff and collectively foster a safe culture as per a recent report. 

Features of effective practice

Ownership
Assessors will hope to see that e-security is a mutual obligation in your setting. Regardless of the possibility that a school has assigned people or online wellbeing champions, lapsing obligation will urge all staff to play a dynamic part. 

Proprietorship depends on: 
  • Proficient information. Does staff know what's in the approach, what their commitments are? 
  • Maintainability of training. What are the results of an e-wellbeing approach? In what capacity can staff guarantee that they are being met? 
  • The consistency of training. Is all staff following similar systems? If a child reports or offers something, is there a standard convention?

Intelligence
Intelligence is another factor that plays a vital role in the inspection of e-safety. Intelligence gathering is a significant component for the sake of identification, prevention and combating the threats if necessary. 

Staff training
Preparing should be quality-guaranteed, yet additionally profitable. 'It's insufficient to have somebody come in for two or three hours, unnerve the living hell out of everybody and after that leave,' Ken called attention to. 

Urge staff to procure singular, ‘pools’ of information - the joint effort will help cultivate the previously mentioned 'shielding society' which reviewers are so anxious to see. 

At long last, it merits emphasising that all staff (from governors entirely through to regulatory team) must be stayed up with the latest with the latest statutory prerequisites and rising dangers.

Policy
This must not be something which assembles tidy on your school's site. Instead, it must be: 
  • Current. An obsolete arrangement will undermine everything the school does to encourage an e-security culture. 
  • Reviewed on a regular basis – it's vital to keep by present and future corrections to direction. 
  • Imparted and comprehended to all offices. Do students know what the approach is and what's incorporated? Do parents know what the school is doing? 
  • Successful practically speaking. On the off chance that an episode happens and the approach doesn't reflect what the school can execute, there's an issue!

Curriculum
A decent or remarkable judgment will depend on the school having the capacity to exhibit that all students are as occupied with their e-wellbeing as staff. 

An e-security educational program will consider that numerous students know about or have had involvement with the more unmistakable e-dangers. Sexting is the oft-referred to the case. 
Teachers must cover the full expansiveness of issues relating to e-security, offer an extension for movement and be centred most importantly not around assessment sealing, but rather student outcomes really execute, there's an issue!

Infrastructure
A balance should be there between the facilitating of wellbeing as well as safety and maintaining a school's obligation of care. This implies permitting secure, observed access, while in the meantime guaranteeing that all staff are there to help any student who may approach with concerns.

Recommendations for schools
There have some suggestions for the classes for e-safety: 
  • review the preparation needs of all staff and give preparing to enhance their information of and ability in the sheltered and fitting utilisation of new advances 
  • work intimately with all families to enable them to guarantee that their kids utilise new advancements securely and dependably both at home and at school 
  • use students’ and families' perspectives more frequently to create e-wellbeing techniques 
  • deal with the progress from secured frameworks to more oversaw frameworks to enable students to see how to oversee chance; to give them wealthier learning encounters, and to cross over any barrier between frameworks at school and the more open frameworks outside a school 
  • give an age-related, exhaustive educational module for e-wellbeing that empowers students to end up noticeably protected and capable clients of innovations 
  • work with their accomplices and different suppliers to guarantee that students who get some portion of their instruction far from school are e-safe 
  • Deliberately audit and build up their e-security techniques, including proper training, to guarantee that they positively affect students' learning, knowledge and understanding.

Common risks encountered during inspection

Contact:
  •      Cyber-bullying in various forms
  •      Grooming
  •      Identity theft that includes frape (hacking of profiles in Facebook) and sharing of passwords
Conduct
  •  Issues about privacy that includes disclosure of personal information 
  •  Online reputation and digital footprint
  •  Sexting (sending as well as receiving of intimate images personally) that is also referred to as SGII(self-generated indecent photos)
  •   Copyright (very little care and consideration of intellectual property as well as ownership such as film and music).
  •   Health and well-being that defines the amount of time to be spent online such as internet and gaming

Importance of inspection
Innovation offers impossible open doors and is always developing. Access is at present becoming widespread and progressively more versatile; what's more, students are utilising innovation at an ever-prior age, as represented underneath. 

There has been a decrease in the quantity of 5–15-year olds owning a cell phone (43% versus 49% out of 2012).

Cell phone clients send an assessed 184 instant messages (IM) in an ordinary week, and cell phones are the most prominent device for getting access to the social networking sites among 12-15-year olds.
  • Out of the blue, there has been a reduction in kids with long range informal communication profiles, and there gives off an impression of being more prominent assorted variety in the Reviewing e-security sorts of long-range informal communication destinations being used. In any case, there has additionally been an expansion in kids who can be reached by individuals obscure to them by means of their person to person communication profiles. Parental attention to the base age necessity for Facebook has expanded among parents whose youngster has a profile on this site. 
  •  Young girls and ladies are more probable than young men to feel under strain to seem well known or appealing on the web, and young ladies matured 12-15 are more probable than young men to state they have encountered cyberbullying through a mobile phone and on the web. 
  •  Despite most by far of children expressing that they are certain web clients and know how to remain safe on the web, there has been an increment in kids with a person to person communication site profile that might be noticeable to individuals not known to them. Innovation brings new open doors furthermore, dangers, and children may require help to survey potential dangers, and unintended results of their media utilise, and to make educated choices about online exercises and administrations.     

Innovation and technology utilisation and e-security issues go almost hand in hand. Numerous occurrences occur past the physical geology of the school but then can affect students or staff.  
  • 40% of Key Stage 3 and 4 students have seen a 'sexting' episode, and in a similar gathering, 40% didn't consider topless pictures unseemly.
  • 28% of Key Stage 3 and 4 students have been purposely focused on, undermined or mortified by an individual or gathering using mobile phones or the web.

  • Issues are amplified for vulnerable children (for instance debilitated students, the individuals who have extraordinary instructive needs, and took care of kids); the web sidesteps typical shielding methodology in this manner making children who are received or encouraged at more danger of having their personalities found. This could be by their introduction to the world parents scanning for them or through children themselves needing to discover who their introduction to the world parents is. 
  • Young ladies are more probable than young men to be harassed on the web. Around 4% of those matured 8– 11 and 9% of those matured 12– 15 who utilise the web say they have understood being harassed online in the previous year. Similarly, as with tormenting through a cell phone, this rate has not changed for those matured 8– 11 or 12– 15 since 2011.
