As part of The UK Safer Internet Centre, the South West Grid for Learning are delivering a number of Online Safety Live sessions across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough between the 15th and 17th May 2019. These sessions are aimed at teachers, police officers, social workers, adoption and foster professionals, youth workers and many more professionals and practitioners working with children.
These events are free to attend and will cover a broad range of online safety topics, including the latest legislation and research relating to online safety and safeguarding. The events are constantly adapted to reflect the current state of play and presented by two experienced consultants and will look at how the technology landscape has evolved and the potential future trends, potential risks and effects on behaviour, health, social and emotional wellbeing, privacy and data, gaming and virtual reality, pornography, sexting, extremism, radicalisation and child sexual exploitation. There will also be an overview to a European project called SELMA which aims to tackle the problem of online hate speech by promoting mutual awareness, tolerance, and respect. http://www.hackinghate.eu/
