The start of a new school year

Digital technology is just a very small part of our big, wonderful world, and to remind us of this the children at Mariaschool Someren in the Netherlands have sent us their artwork about life in the ocean. You can find them in the Kids Corner on the home page. Insight is celebrating the start of the new school year in another way too, with the creation of leaflets for parents and teachers on how to help children become responsible digital citizens.

All Aboard for DigiTown

Looking for an exciting way to introduce young children to the opportunities and challenges of using digital tools responsibly before they begin using social media? Insight's All Aboard for DigiTown may be just what you are looking for. A classroom version  for online lessons is now available too, and the Icelandic version was launched this week. French, Dutch and Arabic versions are coming soon. 

Moroccan Children & the Internet

Cyberbullying, cyberintimidation, sextortion, addiction... Moroccan children find themselves helpless in front of these dangers. Not only victims, but unfortunately, many young people also become actors of these acts.

Among children, 80% spend most of their time in front of screens, 58% of them access Facebook and 22% think that the Internet represents no danger. As for parents, 41% think that children should learn good practices at school and only 28% have the necessary skills to accompany their children on the Internet.

In the absence of clear legal rules to fight cybercrime, it appears that the solution lies mainly in education and awareness actions.

Faced with this worrying situation, several organizations have already started to react by raising awareness among children about the Internet and its dangers. Insight is also involved in training Moroccan children, professionals and parents through workshops and activities. Insight also uses its digital compass to reinforce published studies.

Cyber-wisdom and digital citizenship

Educating young people about virtue and wisdom is a challenging task for educators. This week Insight has contributed to an ongoing project about this at the University of Birmingham: https://www.jubileecentre.ac.uk/media/news/article/6814/New-Expert-Insights-into-Cyber-Wisdom-and-Digital-Citizenship

Trip to Morocco

Children in Morocco are the biggest users of digital technology Africa, which underlines the need for them to learn how to connect safely. Insight, in collaboration with the Council of Europe and the CMRPI, has spent the last two weeks in Rabat, bringing together parent associations, mobile providers, tech companies and government representatives to listen to the challenges and share ideas and good practice. In July and August, children in Rabat will polish their internet safety skills in daily workshops organised by the Association Ibny.

  • Digital Citizenship

    Digital CitizenshipDigital citizenship competences (values, attitudes, skills and knowledge) shape how we act in the digital world, and how ethically it will evolve. We work in multi-stakeholder partnership with institutions, industry, national governments, universities and NGOs worldwide to develop educational tools and services to empower young people as responsible digital citizens. 2019 has seen the launch of the Council of Europe’s Digital Citizenship Education Handbook co-authored by Insight experts and, on November 21, the adoption of a recommendation to integrate digital citizenship education into school curricula in its 47 member countries.

  • Data Protection

    HaveYourSayEducation alone is not enough to protect children. It’s necessary to be involved in research in digital technology, and work hand in hand with industry, governments and international institutions to future-proof tools and platforms, shape policy and ensure broad reach. Insight is part of Facebook’s Safety Advisory Board, Twitter’s Trust and Safety Council, and the Council of Europe’s Digital Citizenship Education working group. It’s proud to be recognised as a source of creative ideas and a trusted partner to dozens of such entities, yet to speak out loudly and clearly when children’s rights are at stake.

  • Anti Bullying

    Bullying2Anti-bullying initiatives include the EU-funded programme ENABLE, subject of a publication with the Council of Europe entitled Bullying: perspectives, practice and insights. 

    We actively support the NoBully Power of Zero Power of Zero anti-bullying programme (USA-based), and implemented workshops and more with the Ministry of Education in Seychelles.

  • Child Protection

    ProtectionThe most powerful way to help children become responsible internet users and stay safe online is through education. We create and implement innovative approaches, tools and publications for children and their families, teachers and community. One such tool is the Council of Europe’s Internet Literacy Handbook (4th revised edition), co-authored by Insight experts since its inception in 2003. The 2019 SMART bus tour is another example, now being rolled out by magicians in secondary schools in the Netherlands and Belgium. SMART sums up the Insight approach - Social sense; My footprint; Access to opportunities; Rights and responsibilities; Trust.
