We have been approached by Trust Elevate to invite teachers, parents and children from Norfolk schools to an event in Norfolk. This event is being organised by the FA (Football Association), who are joining forces with Trust Elevate to empower parents in a digital age. You will be invited to participate in the first trial of its kind between the FA and Trust Elevate where we will test the solution and ask for feedback (this requires no prior technical knowledge on your part). Your opinions on what can be done to keep your child safer online are critical to the development of technologies like the Trust Elevate solution, enabling a safer environment for your children in a digital world. The trial will be a part of an hour long session which will also include a talk from Dr O'Connell.
Areas that will be covered during the session:
Get expert advice on the opportunities and challenges related to digital parenting:
The social networks and live-streaming apps your children use: how they access them/ time spent online/ who they interact with
Taking and sending pictures: helping your child navigate demands to post photos online
The online games children play and who they play them with online
The risks children take and how they perceive their own risk online
Use of devices and how much information we share - protecting your child’s privacy online
As part of this milestone event, you will learn about the latest technology tools that have been designed to protect children from online risks and potential dangers.
Who are Trust Elevate?
Dr Rachel O’Connell is joining the event as the founder of Trust Elevate, a digital parenting solution that enables parents and guardians to communicate directly with online platforms and apps (Football Association, Facebook, Lego, Roblox, Minecraft). Due to the implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation, companies are required to obtain your consent before processing a child's data.
Trust Elevate enables you to provide or revoke that consent at any time, giving you the ability to engage in digital parenting because you will know and be able to control which apps your child can and cannot access. This will afford parents and guardians with oversight of the content that their child is interacting with while ensuring their child interacts with children within the same age band and restricting access to only age-appropriate content.
Their website is as follows - https://www.trustelevate.com/ where you will be able to find out more information, including Rachel’s background in the safeguarding area.
The event is being hosted at the Norfolk Community Sports Foundation (at Carrow Road, home of Norwich City FC) on Tuesday, March 5th between 6.00 pm and 7.00 pm, with refreshments being served at 5.30 pm.
