The age of the Internet has resulted in an explosion of digital communications technologies. The outcomes of this cannot be understated: the ability to carry out an operation from another part of the world; navigate a car using satellite technology previously only available to the military; remotely search for trapped persons after a disaster; talk for free with relatives on the opposite side of the world.
These same digital technologies have also transformed education, not just for use within ICT but also for every curriculum subject: using Google maps in Geography; collaborative working in English; digitally studying the human body in science and much more.
Unfortunately the free and easy use of digital communications, has also meant there are risks and dangers to both children and adults and these cannot be underestimated.
Our online e-safety training course will introduce you to some of these risks and help you to understand where these risks come from.
