Netsafe LIVE Sessions

Senior Leaders/Pastoral and e-Learning Leaders 12:30 - 3:00pm

Light refreshments and networking from 12:30pm and the session will begin at 1:00pm.

Learning and Leading in a Changing Landscape – a whole school approach to digital citizenship, online safety and wellbeing.

Schools are increasingly challenged by the complexities of preparing young people for the digital world. This session will explore seven key areas for strategic oversight of digital citizenship/online safety preparation and begin to use these to review current practices.

This is an opportunity for leaders and teachers to unpack and use Netsafe’s Digital Citizenship Capability Review Tool and understand how this can be used to support schools to develop shared understandings around digital citizenship, prioritise what’s on top, and plan for next steps.

Teachers and Learning Partners 3:15pm - 5:00pm

Light refreshments and networking from 3:15pm and the session will begin at 3:30pm.

Keeping it simple at the coalface – developing online safety, digital citizenship and wellbeing in the classroom.

One in four young people experience online challenges and whānau often look to the school for guidance. Schools need to offer safe digital spaces. We want to help our students to become citizens in our digital world; safe and effective use of technologies is best done in the context of powerful learning.

This interactive session will surface some of the challenges and opportunities for young people the online world provides and look at ways to develop ‘digital’ capabilities effectively across the curriculum. The session will offer a practical, familiar approach to inform curriculum planning in your school.

Parents and whānau 6:30pm - 7:30pm

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

Online safety for parents/whānau is more important than ever. As young people begin to spend more time online, it’s important that parents start to teach them how to stay safe. So, how do you get started?

This session will look at how parents/whānau can support and enable children and young people to navigate online opportunities, challenges and complexities.
