Online Safety in the Primary Classroom
This webinar will provide new insights into cyberbullying and explore practical strategies around safeguarding young people online. Due to Covid-19, more young people are spending increased amounts of time online.
Recent research by the Anti-Bullying Centre (2020) found that 90% of 10-17 year old's connect to the internet daily via smartphones, tablets and laptops. During Ireland’s first national lockdown in 2020, 28% of 10-17 year old's reported being a target of cyberbullying, 50% reported that they had seen others being cyberbullied online - this is almost three times more than before the first national lockdown.
We will discuss
- What bullying behaviour and cyberbullying behaviour is
- What apps young people are using
- How to increase your knowledge and confidence in how to approach online safety in the classroom
- Some practical tips and strategies in how to support your students, should they experience cyberbullying online
We also bring you through FUSE, our Anti-Bullying and Online Safety programme for Primary schools and show how this programme works as a strategy to tackle bullying and online safety in a school environment.
