Gooseberry Planet is passionate about raising the profile of E-Safety in schools and about engaging and educating the whole school community. Parents and teachers have a combined responsibility to protect and prepare children for a life online. But are we doing enough? Do we feel comfortable talking about online dangers? CAN we talk about them or does lack of knowledge, coupled with the digital divide between us and the younger generation, make this difficult?
During the workshop, we will explore all the current social media platforms and discuss the current threats and vulnerabilities that exist online for everyone. You will challenge and reflect upon their own online behaviours and explore practical strategies that can be used immediately to keep themselves and others safer online. The delegates will also investigate Facebook, instagram, google, you tube etc.. privacy settings, Live gaming devices, Live video streaming and fake profiles.
The session will highlight the importance of involving parents in the child’s learning journey and show how Gooseberry Planet can equip teachers with a complete toolkit to effectively and confidently address the subject of E-Safety.
