Jack Changes the Game: Teaching young children about online safety in the classroom

4:30pm - 6pm, Thursday 21 March

Using technology is second nature to many 5 to 8 year-olds. With children spending more time online, how do we teach them the difference between in-person and online friends and the importance of help seeking behaviour?

This webinar will focus on the children’s book, Jack Changes the Game and associated classroom resources. Developed by the AFP and ACCCE, and written by notable children’s author Tess Rowley, Jack Changes the Game takes a child’s perspective to online grooming, the challenges faced online and why it is important to talk to a trusted adult if they encounter any problems.

This presentation is intended for classroom teachers of students aged 4 - 8, and supporting school staff only. It discusses themes of online child sexual exploitation and is not suitable for children.
