About The Webinar

Teaching Online Safety and Digital Literacy to the Under 5s

For: Nursery managers, nursery practitioners

Aim: The webinar will discuss teaching online safety in nursery and early years settings and ways to safely introduce tech skills to the very young. It will explore how digital devices can help children to develop and how to engage parents to align activities at home with what is taught in the setting.

Rationale: As internet-enabled technology is becoming a greater part of all our lives, providing effective online safety education to very young children is taking on even greater importance. Digital devices are increasingly used by children under five (and indeed, nursery and early years phases are included in the government’s Education for a Connected World framework), so it is essential to consider how we introduce technology into settings and the purposes behind its use.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding how children under five use internet-enabled devices, both in education settings and in the home

  • Identifying the online risks that children under five most frequently face when using digital devices

  • Understanding what young children need to be taught to promote safe online use and digital literacy, building a foundation for their future online

  • Recognising the challenges in teaching online safety and digital literacy to this age group – such as using accessible child-friendly terminology

  • Appreciating the necessity to engage with parents in terms of online safety education and knowing how to accomplish that effectively
