Whether you are a church leader, children’s ministry practitioner, or someone trying to resource your church in this area, you may feel the responsibility for helping keep children safe online but also want to know how they and you can use it to its full advantage.

In this day course, developed from Raising Children in a Digital Age (Lion Hudson, 2014), internet scare stories and distorted statistics are put into context, clear and sensible guidelines are offered. You’ll have the opportunity to discuss your hopes, fears and experiences with others in a similar situation, and study examples of how others have used social media successfully with children and young people.

Feedback from their tutor, Dr Alex Owen:

I just wanted to send you a quick email to thank you very much for your input on the Contemporary Issues Level 6 Module.  The students found your teaching really helpful and interesting.  You supplied them with lots to think about in terms of the implications of Social Media for their practice with children and young people.
