Resource Checklist

Time

You'll need to dedicate a school morning to the workshop and a couple of hours prep time beforehand.


Get Started

Register for a workshop

Workshops are provided for kids in 3rd - 6th class; we'll find a time and date that works for you! Workshops are also available for parents.

School workshops cover the basics of internet safety including: social media, gaming, geo-location, personal data, password security, and internet safety. The content is engaging and contains videos, group work, detective games for younger children, and discussions on safety aspects on the most current social media apps.

School workshops are delivered in-person by our specially trained tutors over the course of a school morning. Currently, we have trainers active in the following areas:

  • Dublin
  • Wicklow
  • Kildare
  • Meath
  • Westmeath
  • Louth
  • Longford
  • Clare
  • Cavan
  • Limerick
  • Tipperary
  • Cork

Get the kids to fill-out a 5-min pre-workshop survey

In order to ensure that the workshop is tailored to the needs of your school, we ask you to get the kids in your class to complete a short questionnaire detailing what their technology experience has been e.g. how many students have their own devices, what platforms and apps they're already using and what their experience has been. Having this information will allow us to ensure the workshop is tailored and relevant to your school's needs.

See below for an example of some of the questions. This will be provided to your school as a private pre-coded survey specific for you that each child can fill in. The responses will then be used to design your workshop.
