Digital Age Child Protection

 

Child Watch - founded 2007

RESEARCHING digital threats and EDUCATING young people about those threats since 2007

 

Child Watch evolved through a need for technical research into the activities of people that would cause problems for young people online. Aside from our detailed research, we were asked to visit schools in 2008 and have continued to do so since averaging about 30 schools visits per year. Our presentation material is based on our research that has featured extensively in RTE Prime Time and Investigations Unit documentaries, and supported investigative journalism and child protection investigations worldwide.

 

Internet Resilience Seminars

We talk about digital reputation and safety, and mix presentation and demonstration using commercially licensed software to bring a realistic flavour to the seminar. The three main areas of focus are:

 

Our data privacy

Measures to protect ourselves online.

Serious threats to be aware of.

 

We offer an additional module for senior students entitled 'Ambivalence'

Seminar Delivery

Our seminars are now delivered virtually through Google Meet, MS Teams or Zoom. The duration for junior cycle students is 60 minutes. We have an additional module for senior students entitled 'Ambivalence' that requires an additional 20 minutes, meaning 80 minutes in duration.

Presentation Costs

The cost of each 60 minute seminar is €120, and each 80 minute seminar is €160.

Associating Year Groups

We recommend speaking with 1st years and 6th years respectively on their own and not combined with other year groups. Combining groupings of 2nd and 3rd years is fine, and again with TY and 5th years.

 

Specialist Talks

We also deliver tailored presentations to staff and students at Tusla Residential Care Centres; Guidance Counsellors through Griffith College; political support staff upon request; post-grad students studying cyber crime, forensics and security; and organisations ranging from Scouting Ireland and the NAPD; Diocesan Safeguarding Conferences; special needs groups and carers. Contact us to discuss your requirements by email or phone.

 

Our code of procedure

We deliver presentations to Irish and international audiences, and we take care to ensure that our material is acceptable to clients in terms of visual content and narrative. To that end, we are happy to dry run our seminar with our clients to validate content acceptance. On occasion, we are asked to add/remove/modify content for a particular class, or all classes.
