Sexting, cyber-bullying, tech-addiction, digital footprint – how can teachers help protect pupils online? Hampton’s Digital Wellbeing Conference uncovered the latest digital trends and their potentially damaging impact.
Speakers at the conference included Lorin LaFave whose son, Breck Bednar, was tragically murdered after being groomed online, the ‘Digital Sisters’ Emma and Charlotte Robertson from DAUK, an organisation trail-blazing e-safety in schools. Body Image expert and Psychotherapist, Holli Rubin, discussed the impact of online usage on the developing child and Parent Zone advised on how to help young people boost their digital resilience.
