Internet safety presentation

  1. 1. Internet Safety Adele Roberts & Jane Miller Youth Justice Service Officers Flintshire Youth Justice Service
  2. 2. By the end of today, you may have the urge to……
  3. 3. Please don’t. It’s not the computers fault, it’s the users!!
  4. 4. We know the threat from this?
  5. 5. But have we even considered?
  6. 6. What do we mean by technology?  Computers  Digital cameras  Mobile phones (including smart phones)  Playstation  Xbox  Wii  Hand held games consoles (DS)
  7. 7. We all know that children adapt to new technology faster then adults
  8. 8. Video Clip
  9. 9. It’s more than sex  Suicide  Self harm.  Eating disorders.  Online fraud.  Dangerous trends.
  10. 10. There are many forms of social networking  Networks specifically set up to facilitate meeting people online.  Networks for online games.  Peer to peer networks.  Virtual worlds
  11. 11. If you can’t imagine it…….
  12. 12. And there’s always just Google
  13. 13. Social Networking Sites  Be careful what information you give out on your profile. Remember that you don’t know who your friend’s friends are… or your friend’s friends’ friends! And you don’t know what they’ll do with your picture or your phone number if you give it out by mistake. Once your picture is out there, it’s out there forever and you won’t be able to get it back.  Be aware that information on your profile could potentially be viewed by anyone. So if you wouldn’t be comfortable printing it off and handing it out on the street, maybe it shouldn’t be on your profile.
  14. 14.  The internet has a long memory and its 24/7 365 days a year.  70% of employers now research social network when checking suitability for employment.
  15. 15. Camera phones  Whilst having a camera phone is great and really useful, be careful if you share your photos with others. Pictures can be changed or shared around, so think about what the image is and who you are sending it to, before you press send. Once it’s out there it’s out there forever!
  16. 16. Cyber Bullying  Someone uses the internet or mobiles to deliberately upset someone else.  Undertaken through technology such as mobiles or the internet  Bullying can affect someone not just at school, but at home as well. Because it takes place in the virtual world, it has a 24/7 nature and can make someone feel upset or threatened in their own home  Can be hard to identify who the cyberbully is because they could block their number or post things on a website anonymously. The nature of this type of bullying means it can have a large audience, many of whom may not even realise that they are being bullies.  A positive thin about this kind of bullying is that it can be evidenced. With normal bullying, it can be one person’s word against another’s, but with cyberbullying you can save texts or print our emails/IM’s/WebPages. This can be used as proof to catch the bully and stop them upsetting someone: this could be your or a friend’s child or young people with whom you are working.
  17. 17. Video Clip
  18. 18. GPS technology  The worrying thing about the social networking using GPS technology, is that your contacts will be on a map, showing exactly where they are. If you can see them, your contacts can also see where you are too. Quite scary if you have contacts on your profile that you don’t know or don’t trust. If you do want to use these sort of apps, you need to remember to use your privacy settings and remove anyone you don’t know or don’t trust, from your contacts.
  19. 19. Google Maps
  20. 20. Uploading pictures  Only upload pictures that you’d be happy for your mum to see – anything too sexy to be passed round the dinner table should NOT make it onto the web, as you don’t know who could be looking at it or what they might be doing with it.  Don’t post your phone number or email address on your homepage. Think about it – why would anyone actually need this info when they can message you privately via your social networking site?  Don’t post pictures of you or your mates wearing school uniform – if dodgy people see your school badge, they can work out where you are and find you. The more anonymous you are, the less vulnerable you are to people with bad intentions.  Tick the “no pic forwarding” option on your settings page – this will stop people forwarding your pictures to anyone without your consent.
  21. 21. Sexting  Someone taking an indecent image of themselves, and sending it to their friends or boy/girlfriend via a mobile phone or some other form of technology is sometimes referred to as ‘sexting’.  Once these images have been taken and sent to others, control is lost of them and they can end up anywhere. They could be seen by friends and family, a future employer, or even, in some cases, end up in the possession an offender!  This also puts that person who originally sent the images in a vulnerable position, as somebody they may or may not know now has these images and could use technology to bully, harass or even try to locate them.  Just think – if you wouldn’t print and pass these images around your school or show your mum or dad, they are not appropriate to share via phone or other technologies.
  22. 22. Video Clip
  23. 23. Gaming  Online games where you chat and play with people you don’t know can be great  Can be addictive  Remember that no one will die in real life if you don’t win!  Adults with bad intentions…..  Remember - people are not always who they say they are.  Don’t get tricked or blackmailed to give out any personal details  use a nickname as your username/ character name  You don’t need to share personal information to enjoy the game!
  24. 24. PEGI  There is a new rating system in Europe called PEGI which can help you decide if you want to be involved in a game or not. It’s a bit like film classification and tells you which age group the game is appropriate for and what kind of content it might contain.   Violence  Game contains depictions of violence   Discrimination  Game contains depictions of, or material which may encourage, discrimination   Sex  Game depicts nudity and/or sexual behaviour or sexual references   Drugs  Game refers to or depicts the use of drugs   Fear  Game may be frightening or scary for young children   Bad Language  Game contains bad language
