Online Safety and Preventing Cyber-bullying

Book now for a conference on e-safety, 4th July, London

In a new book, author Adrienne Katz asks 'How well are we doing with teaching e-safety and preventing Cyberbullying?

Although e-safety advice has reached 96% of our young people – less than half say they actually follow it and 14 – 15 year olds least of all age groups, at only 26%. We are all challenged to find ways to enable them to change their behaviour.

Vulnerable children tell us they are even less likely to follow this advice. Now that Smartphones have totally changed the way young people access the internet it is an ideal moment to reflect and re-think our approach to cyberbullying and e-safety.

You are invited to attend a conference and book launch with exciting speakers. The new book 'Cyberbullying and e-safety: What educators and other professionals need to know' will be provided FREE to delegates. This conference promises to open a new dialogue on how to deliver a new model of e-safety education.

Speakers will address working with young people in PRUs, the issue of cyber-homophobia, new models of e-safety education and glimpses of young people’s cyber worlds. Furthermore Chris Keates of the NASUWT will examine how teachers have become victims of cyberbullying by parents and pupils too.
