E-SAFETY AND ONLINE SAFETY TRAINING, SUPPORT AND ADVICE
Online safety has been a passion of mine for a very long time; I love technology and the huge benefits that can be realised through global connectivity and collaboration. I’m a strong believer that online safety is an enabler, not a showstopper; it should not be a barrier to innovative use of technology. I’m a heavy user of social media, have been a gamer since my early 20’s and I love YouTube. In other words, I use all the things children and young people use; I understand their online spaces, and when I’m in schools or speaking at a conference this is exactly what I’m talking about.
I strongly believe that if you educate children using the spaces they engage in, they understand more, they’re more enthusiastic, they engage and therefore the likelihood of positive impact is greater.
