Parent and family workshops
Many of the parents we speak to are alarmed by the internet’s influence on their children. We hear how youngsters “believe everything they see online” and how they accept conspiracy theories, hoaxes and other forms of misinformation as fact. This can give them a distorted view of the world and make them feel anxious or scared.
Our Parent Workshops (open to parents, grandparents, carers) and Family Workshops (parents/carers learn side-by-side with their children) workshops are designed to provide a space in which to share and address these concerns. We provide practical tools to help you guide your child to search effectively, evaluate what you see online and understand the wider context of digital information.
In these fun and interactive workshops you/your child will:
- Learn how to recognise different types of misinformation.
- Practice fact-checking skills to share with your children.
- Learn habits to improve your family’s digital information literacy.
Amazing initiative! I will definitely use the tools and methods to help decipher info and will be sitting down with family this weekend to go through with them.
The workshop was really informative. I had very limited/no knowledge of how to check if things online are real. Now feel I have various ways to check.
I would highly recommend this eye-opening and informative workshop to all parents with young kids. We all need to develop these skills to keep our kids safe online. Schools should have this in their curriculum!!
