With technology continuing to grow and the fact that children and young adults use the internet everyday, whether it be in the classroom, at home getting their homework done before dinner or chatting to their mates whilst playing the latest game, the question has to be asked, do they know and understand their children’ online lives?
On 7th February, CEOP will be releasing ‘’The Parents’ and Carers’ Guide to the Internet at Safer Internet Day (SID), an entertaining and light-hearted look at what it takes to be an online parent. This will be available from 7am on thinkuknow.co.uk/parents and youtube.com/ceop.
About 2 weeks ago, Think You Know released a promotional pack which includes all the information you need to run an event for parents or activities for children ahead of SID. If you would like to download this, you can do so here, just click on the Key Stage area you are interested in.
And finally, Think You Know have launched a Keeping up with the Joneses' film, something to share with parents to get them thinking about how their children use the internet whilst ensuring they are kept safe online.
