 Development of ActiveBYTE materials

The SSE eLIM Education Technology Team developed the original BYTE e-Sense Awards in 2012. As new online opportunities have emerged, and challenges for learners have increased, we have developed a fresh approach that focuses on active learning and using pupils' experiences to teach online safety. The new ActiveBYTES have been written by the eLIM Educational Technology team, and we would like to thank Beech Grove Primary School for enabling Matt Mustafic to be part of this process.

We are currently working with Selworthy and Fiveways Special Schools to update the materials for SEN learners; and continuing work on materials for year 7 and 8.
