Who we are…
At eSafety, we have put together a variety of presentations to cover Internet Safety for every age level. While the talks cover some of the technical aspects of Internet use, the core focus is on delivering important, easy-to-remember advice that can help the children adopt a safer approach to the Internet from the moment they leave the session.
One thing that’s very important to us is that we emphasise the importance of enjoying, and having fun with the Internet. We encourage the children to explore the Internet in the most open and safe way possible.
Some of the topics covered include:
- Cyber-Bullying – The Importance of online communication & being considerate of others. The three key steps to stopping any cyber-bullying incident.
- Social Networks – Safeguarding your private information, accepting friend requests, learning how to use the security settings.
- Future Reputations – How everything that we do and say online can have an effect on our reputation.
Work in Schools:
For schools, we also offer a follow-up quiz (free of charge) to test the children’s knowledge of Internet Safety after the talks. This can make for great discussions about what they have learned, and let’s students voice concerns and ideas about how to deal with cyber-bullying.
For some parents and teachers the internet can be an intimidating place. This seminar aims to demonstrate the basics and to bring them clearly through everything from instant messaging to social networking (i.e all the applications their children are using).
We have worked in a range of both Primary and Post-primary schools. To see more about our primary school work click here, to see more about eSafety’s work in Post-primary schools, click here.
