SQA: Revision of Internet Safety Unit: Practitioner Survey
In September 2006 SQA launched what was probably the world's first Internet Safety qualification, consisting of a single Unit at Intermediate 1. This qualification was aimed mainly at secondary school and college students and has seen a substantial uptake from these groups.
However, there have been significant changes in Internet use since 2006, particularly the increased use of Social Networking and the associated dangers. A minor revision of the qualification was undertaken in late 2010, prior to having it accredited on QCF for use in England and Wales.
SQA is now proposing to carry out a major revision of the unit as used in Scotland. To this end we would be grateful if you could take some time to answer the following questions at your earliest convenience. The questionnaire should take only a few minutes to answer. Your responses will have a major impact on shaping the revised qualification.
Once the results have been analysed they will be publicised through the SQA Computing blog and other sources.
This survey is aimed principally at teachers and lecturers who have been involved in delivering the qualification or are likely to do so in future. Please bring it to the attention of anyone else you think may be interested in responding.
Thank you for your cooperation.
