Online Safety in 2018
We're delighted to welcome independent e-safety expert Karl Hopwood who will give this year's Arundale Lecture on Wednesday 19 September. His talk is aimed at parents and will focus on promoting safer online behaviour for children.
Karl is a leading voice in the world of e-safety and an excellent presenter. He is a member of the UK Council for Child Internet Safety and sits on the advisory board for the UK Safer Internet Centre and the education advisory board for CEOP.
He has worked for a number of key players in the UK and abroad including CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre), BECTA (British Educational and Communications Technology Agency), the European Commission and several Local Authorities within the UK.
As an ex primary headteacher, he continues to work closely with children, young people, parents and teachers to develop safer online behaviours and the promotion of digital literacy.
Karl has been employed for the last five years as an in-house consultant for INSAFE which is the coordinating node of the EU safer internet programme where he is responsible for the coordination of safer internet helplines across the EU.
The talk takes place in the School's Theatre and will last for approximately one hour, followed by an informal Q&A session and an opportunity to meet and talk to Karl over drinks.
Please note the talk is aimed at adults only, and is not suitable for children.
Tickets are free of charge but we expect the event to be popular, so please do book.
