Event Overview: A 60-75 minute presentation on how parents can keep youth safe online followed by a Q&A session. Whether you are a new parent, a grandparent, care for kids or anything in between, this presentation will prepare you with the basics to keep youth safe online. With holidays around the corner, children will have more time to be online and potentially be exposed to a wide array of technologies. This presentation aims to assist parents in keeping their children safe online. ThinkUKnow is an Internet safety program delivering interactive training to parents, carers and teachers through primary and secondary schools across Australia using a network of accredited trainers. ThinkUKnow has been developed by the Australian Federal Police (AFP), Microsoft Australia, Datacom and the Commonwealth Bank.The 60-75 minute presentation, which includes time for Q&A, is delivered by two accredited volunteers paired together to take advantage of both law enforcement and industry-specific skills and knowledge. We use PowerPoint with real life case studies and videos to assist in getting the message across. It is never too early, or too late, to prepare yourself for the online world. In this session you will learn about technologies children are using and challenges faced. Most importantly, if things do go wrong we teach you where to go so you are never alone. If participants can have some prepared questions it would be useful. As well as question time at the end of the presentation, questions can be sent via twitter using #mohdvc or to mohdvc@unsw.edu.au at any time.
