Alan Mackenzie- 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.
With online safety becoming an ever increasing concern with regards to Safeguarding, we are delighted to offer current and relevant training in relation to this.
The Conference will involve:
• A full awareness of the risks to children (and staff), and the risks and liabilities to the school. How are all these risks and liabilities translated into school policy? A full understanding of what the whole school should know
• An understanding of the latest risks such as gaming, YouTube and social media which is tailored to the age of the students. This supports understanding of what risk is, what the latest research and statistics tells us and plenty of real-world examples from my talks with thousands of pupils over the years.
• How to implement a progressive curriculum which fully supports pupil awareness and development at each stage.
