Tech Skills for Foster Carers
Image: public domain
An introductory session designed for carers who would like to improve their skills and confidence when it comes to technology and the internet.
This practical course will teach them the basics of device and online safety, giving them the tools they need to get more involved in their children’s online lives. By the end of the course they will know where to find and set parental controls on the devices their children use, use privacy settings on social media sites such as Facebook and know where to get help if the children in their care are targeted online.
We will ensure that carers have an understanding of the three main points of access – mobile, home broadband and public WiFi – and how to use parental controls to manage access on all three. We include information from the four main Internet Service Providers – BT, Sky, TalkTalk and Virgin.
This is a practical day and requires participants to bring along at least one of the devices their children use at home.
