Online Safety – Facebook Live Event

Although we have pupils returning to school on Monday, we will still have pupils working from home and with the continuing lockdown due to Covid 19, there remains a heavy reliance on digital learning. In addition, online entertainment and gaming has been on the up due to the limitations on what we can all do with our free time. This leads to us thinking about the online safety of everyone and, especially our pupils.

I received the following information from ACC’s Multi Agency Child Protection Learning & development Coordinator. You may wish to sign up for what’s on offer.

CyberSafe Scotland will be hosting a live Facebook event on 24th February 7-8pm to discuss online safety tips for children and young people. Annabelle Turner (CyberSafe Scotland) is being joined by myself, Dr Kandarp Joshi from CAMHS and DI Lesley Clark from Police Scotland to answer any questions parents/carers or professionals have. Young people are also welcome to join this live event and ask any questions they might have.

Here is the event page  – Online Safety Facebook Live | Facebook – it links through so parents/carers etc can get this in their Facebook diary if they are interested and then join live from there. You do not need a Facebook account to join this event.

Please share this information with as many professionals and parents as possible and encourage them to send any questions they have about social media apps/ online safety to this email address so we can answer them live on 24th Feb –  info@cybersafescotland.org

I am sure the event will be very informative in keeping us all safe online and hope some of you will attend.
