28–29 May 2024
Virtual

The steady rise in young people's use of online platforms and social media brings benefits and risks. We encourage schools to take proactive and preventative action as part of their safeguarding efforts for their students' safety, mental health, and well-being.

In this professional learning experience, you'll access training and resources tailored to international school communities. You'll be guided in developing the knowledge, skills, and resources to respond effectively when children are at risk through unsafe online spaces. Return to your school to facilitate community-wide learning.

Experts from Childnet International and SWGfL will provide deep knowledge and lead discussions on practical preventative strategies. You'll also participate in designing and examining school responses using several complex case studies.

You will learn:

  • how to engage students about the forms of online harm that are most prevalent in their setting and understand how critical this is to safeguarding
  • the interplay between the rising use of online platforms and social media and child and adolescent mental health
  • methods to engage and work collaboratively with parents
  • the potential impact and use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and how to respond to this should it present risk to your community
  • effective responses to different forms of online harm and abuse
  • ...and more

Who is this workshop for?

Heads of schools, principals, social-emotional counsellors, university guidance counsellors, safeguarding leads, child protection officers, school board members, and those involved with accreditation teams in your school.
