The presentation will be delivered by a local law enforcement member and an industry volunteer. The presentation covers issues relating to children and young peoples’ privacy and security online, their relationships with other users and their online reputation. It provides insight into the devices young people are using, as well as the popular websites, apps and social networking sites they’re accessing.
This is such a fast changing area that the 21st century parent ought to have regular updates on what is happening. This is a fantastic opportunity for you to learn more about young people and the online environment, and how you can help them to be safe and responsible users of technology. Please mark Wednesday 19 October on your calendar and make a point of coming along.
Time: 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Location: Covenant Christian School
