Webwise “Lockers” and “Be In Ctrl.” Resources

Great resources available from Webwise covering topics such as sexting, online grooming, online sexual coercion and extortion.

“Lockers”, focuses on the sharing of explicit self-generated images of minors and “Be in Ctrl” focuses on the online sexual coercion and extortion of children by adults

The Be in Ctrl resource complements Lockers and both resources focus on educating pupils on appropriate online behaviour and developing a culture of reporting concerns while fostering empathy, respect and resilience.

Clarecastle National School Internet and Technology Use Agreement

Congratulations to Clarecastle National School on their Internet and Technology Use Agreement, which serves to help and support both students and parents in managing technology use. It was a pleasure to work with you all on this.

Timmy’s Technology Troubles

Timmy’s Technology Trouble is an exceptional, necessary and must read book. Addressing key issues parents and children face when navigating the world of technology, it does so in a non-judgemental, proactive and fun way. As a professional working in the area of online safety and a parent of two small boys, I have long waited for a book of this calibre. The perfect book to assist parents and children in understanding the impact of technology and managing our use.

See for more information and to get your hands on a copy.
