SWGfL’s latest self-review tool, 360 Data has been shortlisted as a BETT Awards 2018 finalist in the Service and Support category. Meanwhile the Barefoot computing programme has also been named as a finalist in the Free Digital Content or Open Educational Resources category.
SWGfL has developed 360 Data to help schools and SMEs review their posture, policies and procedures around data protection and information security. Barefoot is a free programme designed to help primary school teachers in England deliver the computer science element of the computing curriculum. SWGfL provides training to volunteers who then deliver training workshops to teachers.
360data is a unique self-review tool designed to help organisations test and improve their data protection policies and practices. Built on the same approach as the award-winning 360 Degree Safe, the tool will help organisations understand what systems are currently in place and how to improve these.
The BETT Awards provide a showcase of resources and companies that seek to provide educators with the information, ideas and inspiration that are fundamental to the learning process.
The winners of each category will be announced at the BETT Awards Ceremony hosted in London during the BETT show in January 2018.
Andrew Williams, SWGfL Online Safety Consultant and Data Protection specialist said:
"We are delighted that 360 Data has been shortlisted for a BETT Award, which recognises the work we are doing at SWGfL to support educational settings in the UK meet the specific challenge of data protection they face on a daily basis.
