Please find below some guidance and resources to support you and your family with staying safe online, in particular during lockdown.
Assessing Online Content and Interactions – Let’s Get Digitally Savvy!
Can you tell when something is a scam online? Can you tell the difference between opinion and fact online? Do you know how to assess websites? Can you spot manipulative behaviour online? Are you able to tell when something is an advertisement online? Do you know where to go to report online concerns?
As part of Safer Internet Day on the 9th of February 2021, WISE KIDS is hosting 2 online interactive workshops which will also feature guest panellists. These workshops will explore how we assess online content and interactions, and the knowledge, digital literacy and resilience we need so we don’t get tricked online.
So come along, to learn more!
Workshop 1 (4pm-5.15pm) is for young people aged 13+ attending with their supervising teacher/youth worker who must complete this registration form: https://forms.gle/E22g6gQ82kAQQ1nv5
