About the Webinar
In this new world, we are forced to accept a new normal the COVID world, but there is another world that we equally forced into, the vast online world. We can face this in two ways. One, to learn and adapt, and two, to await the old normal.
It has been especially difficult for children to adapt from classrooms to laptops, and from blackboards to digital screens
As caretakers (Parents and Guardians), teachers, and educators, we need to be aware of the pros and cons of this transition.
An imperative question with the advent of Online education is concerning safety, privacy, protection, and everything that falls under the age is of Safe online Learning and engagement specifically Cyberbullying.
One parallel that we can make of the online world is that putting aside the stories of AI and bots, it is also a world filled with people. People who are good and bad, just like in the real world.
Just as there are intelligent students in a physical school, and they are also in digital classrooms. Similarly, just as there are bullies in schools, there are cyberbullies in digital classrooms as well. And they have been around from the beginning.
Some of the long-term effects of bullying are depressions, stress-related disorders, and suicide.
Cyberbullying needs addressing, and as caretakers, we need to be aware and educated of this online phenomenon.
In this webinar, Children, Parents, and caretakers will learn rules of online engagement, how to behave appropriately in an online platform, how to identify bullies and instances of bullying and how to stand up against bullying by reporting it to authorities.
