We invite you to attend our next live-stream presentation on Friday 8 September:

Walking the tightrope: Balancing prevention and protection – promoting resiliency to achieve a safe environment online

There has never been a greater need for schools to take a proactive approach towards a whole school community promotion of digital citizenship, including online safety and wellbeing, than there is now. As technology relentlessly evolves to improve our connection and disrupt traditional ways of life, it presents not only new opportunities but also emerging and evolving challenges. This in turn requires our schools, parents and young people to understand and develop the skills required to succeed and flourish in these new environments.

Digital citizenship, as a framework to promote safe and responsible use of technology, must undergo its own growth if it is to remain an effective platform from which to build capable learners of tomorrow.

This CORE breakfast seminar will explore:

  • what the technology landscape looks like for young people
  • the online safety paradox
  • the changing nature of digital citizenship and online safety
  • what educators can do to help learners successfully achieve the balance needed to thrive in an evolving online environment
