So, what is Petra’s Planet Share?
With each passing academic year, preparing students for the globally connected world is becoming more and more important. Providing students with the necessary 21st century skills to be active, responsible members of the online community has become the responsibility of schools, and responding to that need is Petra’s Planet Share, the online cross curricular teaching and learning platform for schools.
Entirely cloud based, there is no installation needed. Petra’s Planet Share can be accessed on any device with an internet connection.
With customisable avatars, students enter Petra’s Planet in a fun and engaging way that sets them on a positive path to enjoying the learning experience. For teachers, there is a whole range of continually growing cross-curricular lesson plans, ready for immediate use.
Promoting safety online
For schools, monitoring how children use the internet is a challenge, as in the easily accessible online world, children are faced with a very adult world in which their anonymity can lead to their being put into situations which can make them vulnerable. As educators, the best way to prevent children suffering online is educating them to help prepare them for what is online, how to protect themselves from potentially unsafe situations, and know what to do to prevent their becoming vulnerable online.
Offering a safe, secure and social online learning environment, Petra’s Planet Share is the solution for schools looking to easily integrate the digital world into school life, whilst keeping all the same security and control they have within the four walls of the classroom.
Petra’s planet includes all the essential features of an online community, with student blogs and global chats – all accessible to teachers so that staff can relax in the knowledge that children are learning online behaviours in a safe, controlled way.
Plus, to help teachers reinforce the message of online security for their students, Petra’s Planet Share has created a free e-Safety Course for schools, covering three core aspects of safer internet usage. The course provides lesson plans on how to teach safety aspects behind online profiles, writing for an online audience and dealing with cyberbullying – all of which is completely free for schools. Teachers simply complete the course with their class, then they are given a digital e-safety badge for their website to celebrate the school’s collective achievement.
The Petra’s Planet Share platform is the ideal solution to engage students in a dynamic, sociable online environment, as well as enable teachers to deliver their lessons and gather work in 21st century way.
