Internet Archive’s National Emergency Library Harms Authors The Authors Guild is appalled by the Internet Archive’s (IA) announcement that it is now making millions of in-copyright books freely available online without restriction on its Open Library site under the guise of a National Emergency Library. IA has no rights whatsoever to these books, much less to give them away indiscriminately without consent of the publisher or author. We are shocked that the Internet Archive would use the Covid-19 epidemic as an excuse to push copyright law further out to the edges, and in doing so, harm authors, many of whom are already struggling. With mean writing incomes of only $20,300 a year prior to the crisis, authors, like others, are now struggling all the more—from cancelled book tours and loss of freelance work, income supplementing jobs, and speaking engagements. IA is using a global crisis to advance a copyright ideology that violates current federal law and hurts most authors. Background
Education for a Connected World resources - Czone The Education for a Connected World framework describes the Digital knowledge and skills that children and young people should have the opportunity to develop at different ages and stages of their lives. It highlights what a child should know in terms of current online technology, its influence on behaviour and development, and what skills they need to be able to navigate it. The document supports one of the key aims of the government’s Internet Safety Strategy of supporting children to stay safe and make a positive contribution online, as well enabling teachers to develop effective strategies for understanding and handling online risks. The framework has been produced by the UK Council for Child Internet Safety (UKCCIS) and is referenced within Annex C of Keeping Children Safe in Education September 2018. The following resources have been produced by SLES to support primary schools with delivering this important aspect of the curriculum.
Updated: Free Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) Resources for Schools During the COVID-19 Outbreak Coronavirus & Remote Learning Updated: Free Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) Resources for Schools During the COVID-19 Outbreak By Dian Schaffhauser06/11/20 (Updated June 11) Education technology companies and organizations have stepped forward to help educators bring resources for social and emotional learning and psychological wellbeing to teachers, students and families during the COVID-19 school closures. The following list of free resources will be updated as announcements are made. Nursery Rhymes & Kids' Songs They say that music is the food of love, but food is about more than just sustenance. Believe it or not there are many, many songs written about different types of food. Peaches, coconuts, apples and bananas have all been featured in song. Ham, eggs, steak and cake have also been heavily features in musical numbers. Since the nutritional education initiative seen across the world, more and more songs about food have cropped up; the songs are intended to teach children about the importance of healthy eating. Donâ€™t be fooled, though, not all food songs are supposed to be all about education.

Play through the tours or use your mouse to poke around yourself to check out the insides, outsides, and undersides of three of the cars in the Museum’s collection. Online Lessons – Run Don't Walk – Primary Computing This series of online lessons is designed for any child in Key Stage 2 (Y3 – Y6, or even beyond!) to watch and learn from independently, or for use by a class teacher who is not confident in teaching computing and can learn alongside the children. The lessons follow the four levels of abstraction/ 4 stages of a project from Task, to Design Algorithm, to Coding to Evaluating/ Debugging. The aim is that the lessons teach the user key concepts in computing (See the table at the end of the page), whilst creating a maze game using the free block based programming software: ‘Scratch‘. The lessons are designed to be paused at the end, showing helpful code, so that the user may follow along and create their own project in tandem with the lessons. At the end of the series, children have the option of sharing their ‘aMaze Game’ project using the Scratch Online Studio feature, which I have set up on my Scratch account.
