Digital Families: looking back and looking forward
Parent Zone’s Digital Families conference has always been at the cutting edge of technology, parenting and education.
And we are delighted – after three Covid-affected years – to be hosting the sixth annual event in London on Tuesday 18 October 2022.
Frankly, the timing couldn’t be better.
While the long-awaited Online Safety Bill dawdles, the digital landscape evolves ever faster. From crypto collapses and marketing in the metaverse to Web 3.0, we need to find new ways to help children and parents respond to the changing online world.
Therefore, we also need to be asking the right questions.
Sixth annual conference
The Digital Families conference launched in 2014. The theme for the most recent – in 2019, hosted in partnership with NCA-CEOP – was ‘Wellbeing In A Connected World’.
As it turned out, this would become essential – as work, education and socialising shifted online during lockdown.
Conference workshops explored image-sharing and harmful behaviours, gaming, self-esteem and digital inclusion, while speakers included Professor Tanya Byron, Sonia Livingstone OBE, Lord Jim Knight, Professor Victoria Nash and Andrew Moffat MBE.
Learn, discuss, network
Delegates for the Digital Families conference come from a wide-range of professions and sectors.
There are opportunities to network with like-minded professionals, discuss the digital landscape, and learn how we can improve outcomes for children, young people and families.
The 2022 event will be held at the Royal Society of Arts (RSA) in Westminster and tickets are free – but limited. Please book soon to avoid missing out.
