EDUtech Europe 2023 Conference Day 2 @ 13:10

Show & Tell - Dropping The Word Playing: Changing The Way We Educate About Safety In Online Gaming

Introducing a radical and global shift in the way we teach our children by removing 'Playing' and changing to 'Visiting' and why we need a shift in our language about online worlds.

Online games have evolved into intricate, interactive platforms that promote learning, social interaction, and even a competitive spirit. However, they also present risks such as predation, sextortion, and scams.

Our educational approach must evolve to equip children with the knowledge and skills they need to navigate this new reality safely and responsibly. As these virtual spaces transition from 'games' to 'places,' we must aid our children in understanding that their online interactions can be as impactful and potentially risky as those in the real world.
