From the Launchpad Level 3 guide:
"The missions at each level of the Launchpad are broadly associated with the Scottish Government’s eight areas of well-being in which children and young people need to progress in order to do well now and in the future. This information is not visible to children and young people playing the game but is instead intended to help Adult Guides to structure learning and map the resource to the Curriculum."Sneaky eh?
"To take part in Launchpad children and young people will need an Adult Guide, who will be able to answer questions and help them with the activities. This Guide should be a teacher, coach, youth worker or other adult, rather than a parent."
"If you have been through the material yourself, and have good knowledge of the personalities and circumstances of children and young people using the Launchpad, you may decide to proactively offer particular individuals reassurance and space to talk. Sharing how you found some of the information – for example, that it made you feel sad or surprised – might be all that is needed to initiate a supportive conversation."
The Children`s Commissioner for Scotland has recently tweeted about the implementation of Launchpad in Scottish schools with no thought that information from Scottish children is being surreptitiously obtained about SHANARRI wellbeing indicators when the Supreme Court has ruled that these are unlawful.
Why is the Children`s Commissioner failing to stand by our children`s right to privacy?
