DigiWiz Internet Safety Workshop
The DigiWiz Internet Safety workshop is based around a range of topics that consist of constant threats but also up to date trending dangers that are occurring. We run workshops for young people by day and for parents in the evening. All our workshops are carried out by fully CPD trained and vetted Internet Safety DigiWiz mentors. Schools are sent a list of the topics that are discussed in advance, so parents are informed on what is coming up during the workshops before the children take part. After each session both young people and parents get a DigiWiz “I will Pledge” which lists a range of good guideline practices on how to stay safe while online. Examples of topics discussed during the workshop includes
Vulnerability / Online risks /Exposure to risks / Webcams (Ratting Virus)/Cyberbullying / Gaming & gaming effects on health / Sexting/ What is trolling? /Pictures last for Life
