Kati participated in the Training Course “Stay safe in cyber space” organized by PROJUVEN in Torremolinos, Spain
Hello Kati! Can you give us your opinion about the project “Stay safe in cyber space“?
When I think back on our training course, I have a very nice memory. The program was well prepared and executed. I especially liked our different group works. Fun part was getting to know people from other cultural spaces and doing interesting energizers.
What are your tips on staying safe online?
Most important tip to stay safe in the internet is to think your posts through. Every post, comment and like leaves a mark and can affect your life in many ways. The other thing is not to be an observer, when you see that something wrong is posted in the internet, but you have to report. And the most important tip I would give is educate your children. They have to know what is ok to do in the internet and what is not. And also the consequences of their actions. Teaching our children internet behaviour will probably give us a more responsible generation of e-smart people.
What is the most important thing you have learned during the training? How do you plan to share and use your knowledge?
The most interesting thing was to hear about other countries and their actions towards internet crimes and bullying. The most important thing was that we all had the same worry about our future generations and how all this media and internet overflow will run their lives. Because I am a teacher, I can use a lot from this training course to do my job. In Estonia fortunately we already have quite good internet education program and anti-bullying programs. I certainly can use a lot of these energizers we did. I also plan to have group works with my students to discuss cyber-bullying topic in our region. This topic is important and I know that I have to do activities and have discussions on this daily.
Thank you for an amazing experience and well organized training course!
