Overview

CPD Certified - on average contributes 1 - 2 hours towards your CPD.

Technology is affecting younger age groups. Whereas earlier generations had to be content with dressing up as a cowboy or princess, nowadays instead of using toy guns, boys and girls are armed with games consoles, mobile phones and the monster weapon that is the internet.

Children don’t only have access to technologies at home; ICT is embedded across the curriculum, so with such exposure children typically have a lot of confidence. However, their knowledge of the risks and dangers may not be high.

As the internet is available in many places; anyone who works with children has a role to play in providing eSafety education as well as supporting parents in providing a safe home environment.

This module will be useful for anyone who works with, or is involved with children during the course of their work, including parents.
