The potential threat of ‘Live Streaming’ platforms to children

The following update comes from Thinkuknow:

The area of live streaming presents a nuanced threat to children and young people due to the immediacy of contact and the large numbers of offenders and comments that young people are dealing with live, in real time. The CEOP Education team have developed online sessions and activities  to support and educate different age groups, with the resources aimed at younger children focus on the behaviours associated with growing self-esteem and positive attention seeking, and the sessions for the 13+ age group focus on a case study of a live streaming scenario.

There are also accompanying resources for parents and carers to educate them about their children’s internet use and factsheets for professionals that provide context and information about live streaming.
