SHARING IMAGES

 

These playlists focus on the topic of sharing images have been published for children and young people and parents and carers.

 

Mobile phones have made taking photos so easy and assessable. Taking photos has become a common pastime of children and young people, allowing them the opportunity to be creative, artistic and expressive. However with images containing so much information, it is important children and young people critically consider how they share images to avoid unintentionally sharing too much information, which may put them at risk. These new Playlists explore the power of image and examine both the potential positive and negative aspects of sharing images. The resources discuss the possible risks a child or young person may encounter and provide guidance on how to prevent and deal with these situations. Learners are guided through a series of thoughts about the contexts and situations in a sensitive and age-appropriate manner with advice, guidance and support. The resources also highlight useful sites that can further support conversations with young people

The link will also take you to playlists focusing on the topic of sharing images that have been published for education practitioners and governors.
