Online Digital Safety

by Boris Radanovic

Thursday 18th Februay 2021, 2pm GMT 

(Zoom link will be mailed to IH Staff)

Child Strangles herself for Tik Tok Challenge; This happened, less than three weeks ago in a city where there is an IH school.  Don't let there be a next time.

The children we work with every day are digital natives, but they are not necesarily digitally safe as the tragic news story above so clearly shows. There are challenges for children every day in the digital space. 

Teachers in language schools share a responsibility with teachers in mainstream schools to protect the children in their care. Especially now we are all interacting a lot more online. This session will give you tips and resources to help you on your way to become a positive digital role model and equipped to protect children online.  

As well as delivering this talk, Boris from the Safer Internet Centre has kindly planned a special resource area for IH schools. We are lucky to have this available to us. 

Whether you are a parent, a teacher, or a director wanting to make sure you are doing the right things in your school, please come along next Thurs 18th February, 2pm GMT. 

(As always, for those who are not able to attend this will be recorded.)
