Wellbeing, Safety and the Online Environment

While opportunities abound online, challenges also arise that can, and do impact on students' safety and wellbeing. This session will focus from the 'inside out'. Working from scenarios, we will unpack the initial management of an online incident, and touch on NZ's law around Harmful Digital Communications. We will briefly look at Netsafe's research findings on 'our young people' in NZ around online engagement. The session will conclude with a look at what resources and initiatives are available for schools to use in supporting young people. No prior knowledge needed. Attendees can bring a device to access sites and resources if desired.
