Very important to start positively. – Stress that the internet is a wonderful resource and include a few examples of how you are using the Internet in your teaching to help children discover, connect and create their own work. – Clearly the fact that this is a global medium is important to stress. However – it is also important to state that because the Internet puts the whole world in children’s hands that they can equally access things which you as parents might not like them accessing (but not in school!) When we look at this issue of Internet safety we need to do so in a balanced way making sure we don’t forget the real benefits!
This emphasises the need for education to be underpinned by how to react, who to talk to, how to be responsible and react to irresponsible behaviour and also how to react to contact and how protect your information and also

Sexualisation of Children andYoung PeopleDr Linda Papadopoulos review on the ‘sexualisation of youngpeople’ “It comes as no surprise that when researchers examine the content of young people’s web pages they find that young teens are posting sexually explicit images of themselves on social networking sites, and self regulating each other with sexist, derogatory and demeaning language”
Sexualised Content and Pornography 30% of web traffic accounts for sexualised content. Increasing amount of young people citing learning about sex and relationships through online sexualised pornography. Increased access to sites to non-cost, anonymous and integration into Social Networking sites / video sharing Difficult to filter / Pop Ups Critical time of self awareness exploration of identity for young people. Portrays unrealistic sense of relationships, gender. Illegal content and practices Blurred boundary what constitutes illegal content with child sex abuse

Customisable Key Safety Advice forChildren and Young People! Treat your passwords like your toothbrush! Never share and change them often! Make sure you know who people are before adding them as ‘friends’ Know how to ‘block’ people Don’t post your personal information – full date of birth, email addresses, phone numbers and location on your profile, an update or tweet Know who to tell things to that concern you, talk to your parent, teacher or youth worker OR use the CEOP Report Abuse Button NEVER meet up with anyone offline without your parent/carer or trusted adult Don’t rely on ‘privacy’ settings to safeguard your personal information on your profile or posts Think before you post whether it’s a picture, video clip or comment about yourself or others….it IS going to be out of your control! Make sure you ‘log off’ when you are finished
Social Networking Guidance -Professionals Keep profiles separate Think about who you friend or follow Personal Information on updates or tweets Consider password / passphrase strength Think before you post Be wary of online comments Meta data in pictures/videos Chronology and time stamps Email Usage and Security Use professional networks to maximise the benefits of online learning communities
Key Safety Advice for Parents / Carers Keep talking….what do they like doing online, ask them to show you..don’t be afraid to ask what concerns them, content, contact or conduct. Be prepared to talk about violent or sexualised content - it’s what concerns them. Make sure they know who they can speak to if they see, hear anything that concerns them. Be a good role model yourself, contribute to safer online communities by encouraging responsible use too and good use of technology. Keep reminding your children to ‘think before they post’, whether it is something about themselves, a video clip, an update or a ‘like’ it is going to be outwith their control as soon as it’s posted. No-one is going to judge you or your child, it’s never too later to report.
Responsible Use in Learning and Teaching Set the context Create safe environment (a proportion of pupils are more than likely to have been affected) Go through group agreements Capture learning / shift in attitudes Know where to signpost Use local / recent / contextual examples Be balanced, avoid gender stereotyping Refer to Acceptable Use Policies CEOP / Childnet Resources Or create your own….share them! Involve the community Remember the benefits……
