TES advertising campaign is promoting THINK! Resource Centre

Friday 27th September 2013

The THINK! Resource Centre is being promoted via a month-long online advertising campaign on the Times Education Supplement website (TES Connect) to coincide with schools reopening after the summer holiday period.

The Resource Centre comprises 25 lesson packs covering a range of road safety topics for children and teenagers of all ages. The lesson packs are colour coded by key stage and age range, from early years to key stage 4.

Each lesson pack contains a lesson plan, links to road safety teaching resources, and activities; everything required to plan and deliver effective road safety education.

The resources are not limited to classroom use - they can be used by anyone with responsibility for educating children and teenagers on road safety.

Dimple Shah, THINK! campaign manager, said: "TES Connect is one of the largest online networks for teachers and education professionals with an estimated 3.6 million unique users. The Resource Centre banners are running on the popular Resources and Community pages of the website.

"We've also secured free online advertising with the PSHE Association and a mention in its newsletter about receiving the Quality Assurance Mark."

The Resource Centre will be further promoted in the run up to Road Safety Week (18-24 November) to remind PSHE teachers to use it as part of citizenship teaching.

In the article you will find a link to the Resource Centre - the resources are freely available for anyone to access and use, inluding parents should they wish to do so.

Would it be possible, or dare I suggest, that the children's parents have sight of these packs also.

Maybe special after school classes. Would that be considered inappropriate or maybe even patronising. At least they would understand more and be able to assist their child with learning about road safety and one never knows they might learn something themselves.
