CyberSafeKids has partnered with the NYCI Child Protection Programme to offer individuals in the youth work sector the opportunity to enrol in a free 4-session course. The course focuses on developing the increasingly vital skills of digital media literacy in your work.
This is an opportunity for your own professional development as a youth work leader, to bring your learning back to your organisation, and to explore strategies for empowering the young people you work with to use technology in a stronger, smarter, and safer way.
The course is a weekly online commitment of one hour per week, for four weeks. This is a 4-hour programme in total, with opportunity for further learning, and course evaluation engagement. No prior expertise in digital media literacy or online safety is required- just basic digital skills.
The aim of this course is to support youth workers and volunteers to enhance your awareness and skills development in digital media literacy so that you can apply and share this learning in your work with young people.
The course will cover the following:
The course is delivered online as 4 short interactive workshops. CyberSafeKids are offering 2 separate opportunities to sign up for this course:
