E-safety: engaging with the whole school community 

27 FEBRUARY AT 12.15 | HALL 'ENTER'

The presentation is about taking the fear away from technology and understanding that it is behaviour that creates risk. It is about giving ideas on how educators can teach children in ways that they will understand and be empowered rather than standing in front of children and teaching them rules.  

Alan is an independent, specialist adviser in the United Kingdom working mainly in education specifically around internet safety. He is a strong believer that simply blocking technology does little to mitigate risk to children, but empowering and educating children and young people allows them to recognise, respond to and manage risk whilst enjoying the wonders that technology gives us.

Technology is quickly changing  the world around us and many fear it will replace  human intelligence. Some are afraid there will be no more need for training in the near future and that technology could take over lots of tasks and capacities. The thing is: Education will never disappear and nor will the trainers! Yes, you are right it will take different forms. How will the future of education be shaped in the next  20 years?
