Natterhub's planning tool makes organising and planning for online safety and digital literacy simple - this tutorial will show you how. Broken down into five programs for each age range, you can select programs and preview lessons, see how they relate to curriculum targets, view results of quizzes and self-assessment results, and much more.

Take a look at our other tutorials on Natterled and Teacher-Led Lessons, and how Bookmarked Lessons link in to the planning tool. 


You can find a transcript of the 'Planning' tutorial here: 

Natterhub’s planning tool allows teachers to choose a series of ready-to-teach, interactive lessons which fit around their busy classrooms. 

First, choose your year group, then choose a Program to Preview. This list provides an outline of how much time each Program requires. For this tutorial, let’s have a look at Year 5, Program 2: a mix of teacher-led and independent Natterled lessons. 

Here, you can see the lessons in Term 1, Term 2 and Term 3, all of which can be looked at in further detail using the Preview Lesson button. 

In this view, you can download a spreadsheet which outlines all the curriculum targets this Program teaches. 

If you would like to go back and look at other Programs, simply use the ‘Back to Programs’ button, or if you’re ready to go ahead a choose this Program, click ‘Teach This Program’. 

Once you’ve chosen a Program to follow, your progress bars are likely to be empty. These have some progress in them because this teacher has been busy using the lessons already!

You can see that Terms 1, 2 and 3 are visible, just like in Preview mode, but you can now launch and post lessons. 

Before you start a teacher-led lesson, you might want to have a glance at the lesson slides with the Preview button and download the accompanying resources. 

Once you’re ready, all you need to do is click Start Lesson. 

Pupils can interact in the comments throughout by posting text, and images and videos of offline learning. 

At the end of the lesson, select which pupils attended and they will be sent a quiz. Once this quiz has been completed, you’ll be able to take advantage of the Lesson Data.

Here you can see the results of the quizzes taken, the self-assessment results, and also some suggested lessons to continue exploring content with similar learning objectives.

When using the independent Natterled lessons, all you need to do is click “Post to feed” and pupils will be able to engage with the animated teachers directly in their newsfeed.

Finally, at the top of the planning page, you can download the curriculum targets that this Program covers. More in detail pupil progress data can be downloaded in the Assessment area. 

If you choose to change your Program at any time you can do so using the “Switch Program” button.
