COVID UPDATE: Our parent workshops are now available remotely.
Experienced media literacy trainers Shelley Metcalfe and Laura Cunningham have been delivering workshops in schools since 2017 co-host these online sessions in which you will learn:
- How to spot misinformation and avoid ‘fake news’
- Simple techniques to fact-check online materials
- Practical habits for media-savvy kids
Get in touch if you would like to host or attend one.
Many of the parents and carers we speak to are alarmed by the influence of the internet on their children. They maybe ‘digital natives’ but we hear how youngsters “believe everything they see online” and 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 will give you the knowledge and confidence to guide the children and young people in your life. This video explains more.
Our Parent Workshops (also suitable for grandparents, carers and other adults with children in their lives) provide a space to explore and address these concerns. We provide simple and effective techniques to help you guide your child to search effectively and evaluate what they see – helping them to tell fact from fiction online.
Workshops may also take place in schools, workplaces or the community settings (restrictions permitting).
