Barnardos Online Safety Programme has been developed based on research, current thinking and best practice in relation to promoting online safety among children. The workshop for children is highly interactive. The aim of the workshop is to promote online safety and positive behaviour online. Children are increasingly spending large amounts of their time online. Research carried out in the UK for Ofcom’s 2016 report on Children and Parents: Media Use and Attitudes discovered that 8 in 10 young people aged 12-15 now have their own smartphone and spend an average of 15 hours a week online. Teachers can access Google’s ‘Be Internet Legends’ programme and resources for additional information.
