)-- Child Protection in the Digital Environment
Tuesday 23rd September 2014 – Central London
Recent years have seen the evolution of mobile and digital technology transform how children interact in their daily lives. It is vital for professionals with a duty to protect children to establish effective e-safety strategies by keeping up to date with cyber culture in this rapidly evolving agenda.
This conference showcases leading figures in e-safety who will guide delegates through essential topics to help deliver a multi-agency approach to safeguarding children.
With a cross-Government commitment to making the internet safer for children, the new ICT curriculum launching in September 2014 and e-safety provision now part of Ofsted’s inspection framework, protecting children online is a key priority. Delegates will hear from policy makers and innovative practitioners from schools, local authorities, police, charities and internet providers, about the hottest topics including:
· Mitigating the risks of the emerging social media ‘app’ market
· Embedding e-safety across the curriculum
· Managing inappropriate internet usage, cyber bullying and sexting
· Tackling online sexual exploitation and grooming
Expert speakers at this event will ensure delegates take away the knowledge and tools needed to safeguard children by minimising risk, whilst empowering young people to use digital technologies responsibly and safely.
