Internet for Children / Guidance for EYFS Practitioners

The two reports in today's post both contain similar subject matter to other documents which some of my recent posts have referred to. So without further ado:

Harmful Content on the Internet and in Video Games is the title of a new report from the cross-party Culture, Media and Sport Committee in the House of Commons. The report covers similar grounds to Tanya Byron's recent research in this area (see previous post for details) and examines how children can best be protected from exposure to inappropriate online material.

Also new from the DCSF is the lengthily-titled Supporting Children with Speech, Language and Communication Needs: Guidance for Practitioners in the Early Years Foundation Stage. If you work in a school with young children, then you may also use the Teachernet site to order a free copy of this guidance which comes with a free, interactive DVD.
