This timely seminar will examine the latest thinking on the relationship between young people and digital technology.
It takes place with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport and the Home Office preparing to publish its White Paper on Internet Safety.
The seminar will bring out latest thinking on empowering young people online and developing their digital literacy, resilience and advanced skills - and the further steps that can be taken by policymakers, schools and technology providers.
Discussion will also draw on examples of best practice in using technology to aid learning in the classroom. The key issues for the relationship between young people and digital technology will also be discussed, with a focus upon the latest findings on media use and attitudes of children online; how we can support young people to confidently access the benefits of the internet and creating safe digital environments and using the Internet as a tool to support education.
Delegates will also consider possible next steps for the development of a digital charter, following the Government’s initial response to its consultation on its Green Paper on Internet Safety Strategy - with a particular focus on the responsibilities of media organisations, and key issues around young people’s use of social media.
