Protecting Young People on Social Media

Eagle Radio have delivered Online and Social Media Law & Ethics training to over 25,000 students, parents, staff and charity professionals.

We offer engaging and thought-provoking activities that use the latest case studies to highlight the risks and laws of social media. Designed by qualified journalists and covering hot topics such as extremism, cyber-bullying and underage sexting, our social media professionals will help students explore key legal and ethical considerations alongside best practice for safeguarding and disclosure.

We also offer external training on social media law for professionals working with young people.

Testimonials from staff and professionals

 

“Yes, I would recommend this course; students were engaged by the issues and the presentation… Very engaging and appropriate. Very interesting. And the tutor certainly knew how to handle large groups of teens!” – T. Colloff, Farnham Heath End School.

 

“The children were kept engaged throughout and learned a lot. It is a unique take on the Internet safeguarding messages that they are given. The law is a tangible thing to them, in the way reputation and risk is not. The use of the case studies was very good. I liked the psychology behind them and hopefully will plant the seed in quite a few of the pupils to make better decisions when considering trolling, bullying someone or saying something that they think is funny online… I would definitely recommend it, it is a very useful course. Thank you. I would be interested to know if you are putting on any more of your briefings for practitioners as there may be other staff and governors here who would benefit from hearing your message first hand” - Tony Sharps – Head of IT, Internet safeguarding officer, Amesbury School

 

“Excellent course, really relevant for the students. I liked the case study approach and the fact that the students had the opportunity to discuss issues. What stood out was the real-life stories which students were not aware of e.g. the insulting tweet following the bin-lorry tragedy in Glasgow, the leaking of snapchats which are stored on their server…. I would definitely recommend this course – several members of staff are requesting the contact details for their new school, their child’s school etc. Thank you for the resource pack you have provided and for the work you are doing to support schools.” – Maria Mason, Weydon School

 

“I would definitely recommend this as the course was delivered well, the content was very relevant to students growing up in an online world, and the tutors have shown themselves to be reliable and professional. The course was well organised and very relevant for the students (Years 7-11)… The content was relevant and the use of real life examples of tweets/posts etc. was excellent. The laws were also presented in an accessible way to the students… Many thanks for a really useful day! I have been referring back to it in lessons and assemblies since!” - Elanor Wexler, Moon Hall College

 

“The training we received was excellent.  It was at a good pace for our students and very well presented.  The students found they had time to think about different scenarios and it prompted really good, relevant discussions.  They were all interested and engaged. Our students don’t use social media as much as other main stream kids but it is still relevant and good for them to have an understanding of the issues as they are more vulnerable than mainstream students.  It is essential they are taught about the pitfalls and implications of not using it correctly.  It would be great to have more training for students with special needs, but also training for staff and parents is essential, as they have much more responsibility to those in their care”.  - Annie Paget, Head of Post 16/FE, Walton Leigh School
