Tackling online safeguarding risks in education

Impero Software to host e-safety seminars in Nottingham and Manchester

The issue of protecting children’s internet use has never been more topical than now. Sadly, parents and teachers can’t monitor entirely what children do when they are browsing the internet, and kids don’t always know when a certain behaviour may put them at risk.

As well as facilitated education, we are aware that the digital age has brought a degree of danger too and incidents like grooming and cyberbullying are becoming more and more common and need to be tackled appropriately.   

This is when digital technology can help. Using monitoring software that will alert members of staff whenever “red flag” phrases are used on the institution’s network can highlight when these individual instances of troubling behaviour form a larger trend. Also, how to protect login details, passwords and how to browse responsibly are just some of the things teachers need to address during lessons nowadays. 

To help colleges reducing costs and improve both staff and student productivity, education establishments around the world are relying on the support of powerful dedicated remote monitoring and management software to help them tackling these issues so that they can concentrate on what they do best: educate.

With the introduction of the Prevent duty and proposals for compulsory IT monitoring in schools, it is essential for teachers and educators to prepare for every eventuality as new risks present themselves to students online on a daily basis.  A full day seminar about ‘Tackling Online Safeguarding Risks in Education’ is at help to provide the right tools to ensure teachers are fully equipped and up-to-speed with the latest online problems, and prepared to react should an issue arise.
