Digital is revolutionising childhood. From smartphones to smart speakers, technology is rapidly claiming a role in all aspects of life. Traditional online safety messaging needs to adapt too. How can educators support young people as empowered, engaged, critical and responsible digital citizens?

In this training programme, we’ll cover the range of online harms faced by young people within the context of tech trends and the digital skills agenda. Using scenarios, we’ll bring your knowledge up to date, consider professional skills, curriculum links and key resources to help you educate young people and respond to incidents. Plus, you’ll receive a free parents’ presentation for use by your school, and access to focused webinars and podcasts to keep you in the know.

We’ll look at topics such as:

Don’t share, don’t talk, don’t meet! Let’s bring online safety education up to date..

Sexting: How effective is blaming and shaming?

The greatest lie ever told: Trust, conspiracy, algorithms and critical thinking.

Gaming addiction: Are the kids really hooked?

Disengaged and oversharing: Tips for involving families in online safety.

Being me online: How can educators manage their social media presence?

Hurry, book NOW before it’s too late! (clickbait and why it’s a problem for educators).

… and more!
