Practitioners - Internet safety and responsible use - Using Glow and ICT Scotland's Child Internet Safety Action Plan The first UK Child Internet Safety Strategy was launched in December 2009. In February 2010, the Scottish Government launched its own specific Action Plan to help address some of the child internet safety and responsible use issues in Scotland. The Scottish Action plan specifically uses the words 'responsible use' following any reference to 'child internet safety'. We believe in Scotland that one of the ways to keep our children safe online is through education in how to use the internet responsibly. The report makes reference to the fact that internet safety and responsible use is the responsibility of all staff. Teaching resources There are a number of resources that are available online to support the teaching of internet safety and responsible use. The Internet Safety and Responsible Use Glow Group provides resources for teachers to update their skills and knowledge on all issues regarding internet safety and responsible use. GTCS Standards
