Digital Rights and Safety for Children is a new online course

“Digital rights and security for children” – a new online course from our expert on digital rights and security Anastasia Apetyk. What is it about?
Every day we spend a lot of time on social networks and the Internet. And children and teenagers almost live there. Do we know what threats they face in cyberspace? Do we know how to protect them?

Every day we spend a lot of time on social networks and the Internet. And children and teenagers almost live there. Do we know what threats they face in cyberspace? Do we know how to protect them?
And they themselves?

Anastasia Apetyk:
“Over the last 2 years, I have received many requests for open lessons and consultations from parents, teachers, school principals and teenagers on digital rights and security. I did a few lessons for children, and I was shocked by their stories about “online adventures”, because children do not always tell teachers and parents about the online traps they fall into.
Do children tell you about bots on social networks? About threats? About the banned content they come across? About photos that for some reason were published in the public domain?

Are you familiar with the situation when the children themselves create a teacher’s profile online and publish posts from it? And what to do with it?
It is not rational to hold 100-500 lessons or master classes, so we have developed an interactive course that every teenager or teacher can see. The course is made with love, it is with tests, jokes, games, memes and useful life hacks, and tested on a group of teenagers and teachers. ”
