About The Webinar

The Impact of Age-Inappropriate Content and How to Manage Children’s Exposure | Secondary

Course Duration: 1 hour 21 minutes (approx.)

This webinar will provide headteachers, school leaders and all school staff with an understanding of the psychological, emotional and physiological impact of age-inappropriate content and practical guidance on supporting children who may have been affected by it.

According to a survey conducted by AVG Technologies this year, parents’ number one concern about their child surfing the web was the potential for exposure to inappropriate content. With many parents heavily reliant on the school for support and guidance, it’s vital that staff have the knowledge to understand the impact of age-inappropriate content and skills to be able to respond effectively.

In this webinar, Cayley Jorgensen, a mental health practitioner and director of FaceUp South Africa, an anonymous reporting platform used to tackle online bullying, explores the role of digital design in children accessing age-inappropriate content, what influence it can have and what support schools can provide to pupils and parents.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding what is defined as age-inappropriate content, what it’s comprised of and why such content is harmful for children.

  • Recognising why children come across age-inappropriate content, where they get the content from and what factors increase the risk of exposure.

  • Identifying the different ways in which age-inappropriate content can affect children, including how they get influenced and the impact it has on their mental health.

  • Understanding how to have an open conversation with children regarding age-inappropriate content online and how to educate them on what they may come across.

  • Recognising how to respond to incidents of children viewing age-inappropriate content and practical tips on the skills and knowledge to teach children of different age groups.
