You can now pre-order Digital Parenting magazine!
Welcome to the first Parent Zone newsletter of the new school year.
We’ve been busy here over the past few months, creating lots of exciting projects to help keep children and young people safe online while learning how to become confident and happy internet users.
Here are some of the things we’ve been working on:
- We have thousands of schools signed up for Parent Info, the free advice service for families from Parent Zone and CEOP, for schools to run on their own websites. If your child’s schools hasn’t signed up, parents can access the content for free at ParentInfo.org.
- We’ve re-designed our membership area on ParentZone.org.uk so that all our resources are now available online – and they’re even easier to find.
- We partnered with Google to bring the fantasticInternet Legends assemblies to primary schools up and down the country, with hundreds of children learning about how to be ‘safe and epic’ online.
- 2016 saw the launch of our Family Champions reviews. Building on our continuing work to encourage companies to be aware of their duty of care to children when launching digital products and services, it celebrates family-friendly tech, apps etc and is a useful guide for parents.
- Last, but by no means least, we distributed a million copies of Digital Parenting magazine and have been busy working on the new issue over the summer.
And we’re pleased to say that the wait is nearly over, because issue 5 will be launched on 10 October 2016 – and we are now ready to start taking pre-orders. See the box below for details.
Digital Parenting, produced in association with Vodafone, is only available via the Parent Zone website. Schools and organisations working with families can place orders of 50 copies or more – so if you’re a parent, make sure your school does just that by pointing them towards the links below.
Onwards and upwards!
This school year, we will continue to work with many of the world’s leading tech companies, the government, schools, parenting professionals, parents and young people themselves to make the internet work for families.
If you have any concerns or questions about our work or any of the topics we cover, don’t hesitate to contact us. We can only continue to help families and improve outcomes for children with your input!
