Safe and Smart Online - Developing safe, confident, and responsible online citizens in the classroom context

One in four young people experience online challenges and whānau often look to their school for guidance. As digital technology is a part of many learning environments, schools play a pivotal role in helping young people develop the skills, knowledge, and values needed to help become citizens in a digital world. This session will look at online challenges and opportunities students face, and discuss ways to develop ‘digital’ capabilities across the curriculum. We will briefly look at the Harmful Digital Communications Act, responding to online incidents, familiar approaches to inform curriculum planning, and a look at resources and tools to support you in class.

Parents and Whānau 7.00 - 8.00 pm

Powerful Partnerships – working together to support young people as they navigate the online world.

Online safety for parents and whānau is more important than ever. As young people and children begin to spend more time online, it’s important that parents start to teach them how to stay safe, develop knowledge of the online environment, and develop emotional and social capabilities to help navigate complexities online. So, how do you get started? This session will look at how parents and whānau can support children and young people to navigate online opportunities, challenges and complexities.
