Netsafe Evening For Parents/Caregivers

posted 4 Sept 2016, 13:44 by Debbie Stevens
We live in an increasingly complex world, where technology 
is influencing change at an exponential rate. In order to benefit the most from the use of technology, and to minimise the potential risks, it is vital that we develop our digital literacy and citizenship skills in order to thrive in this
exciting and variable digital landscape.

After receiving such consistently positive feedback from parents/caregivers who have attended past Netsafe presentations, we are pleased to be holding the same session once again.This year’s workshop will be held on Wednesday, 7 September, from 7.00 – 8.30pm.

The workshop will be facilitated by Lee Chisholm from Netsafe, which is an independent, non-profit organisation that promotes confident, safe and responsible use of online technologies for all New Zealanders.

The session will cover the following:

◆ Internet safety

◆ Digital literacy and citizenship

◆ Safe online habits at home and beyond

◆ Understanding social networks and how they can be used positively

◆ The challenges presented by using social media

◆ Conversations you might have with your daughters about online practice

◆ A chance to ask questions.

Where: The Sports Education Centre (upstairs) – Room S2.

Please park in the Martin Street car park.

What to expect: This will be a round-table session with opportunities for discussion. Tea and coffee and a light supper will be provided.

Cost: Free.
