Safe online together: an integrated approach to navigating the risks and opportunities of digital media for families.

Project: Research

Project Details

Description

‘Safe Online Together’ develops a series of evidence-based, innovative workshops and online resources to provide families with school-aged children with the skills to balance the risks and opportunities of digital technologies and reduce family conflict around technology use. By training young people aged 18-25 to deliver the programs to parents and children as a family unit, the project aims to promote intergenerational knowledge and understanding, facilitate discussion about managing online risks, and develop a set of tailored family protocols for digital technology use amongst families. The program and resources will be developed by researchers from the News and Media Research Centre at the University of Canberra, drawing on a substantial body of empirical research, and delivered to families throughout the Canberra region in partnership with local community services organisations.
