- ITU course completed: Child Online Protection for Parents and Carers (Intermediate)
The Child Online Protection for Parents and Careers (Intermediate) course offered by ITU aims to build on the knowledge and skills gained from the introductory course, providing more advanced information on online safety for children. I think the most valuable aspect of the course is the in-depth coverage of topics such as cyberbullying, sexting, and the impact of technology on child development. The course also offers practical guidance on how to respond to online safety incidents and how to support children in developing digital literacy skills.
Whether or not what I learn during the course changes my perspective depends on my pre-existing knowledge and beliefs about the subject. However, the course offers a more comprehensive and detailed understanding of the topic of child online protection, including the latest research findings, current trends, and potential solutions.Overall, I would highly recommend this course to parents, caregivers, and anyone who works with children. The course provides valuable insights and practical advice for keeping children safe online and engaging with them on this important topic. It is particularly useful for those who have completed the introductory course and want to deepen their knowledge and skills in this area.
