The internet is an integral part of all of our lives and the age at which children are accessing the internet through a variety of devices is changing as younger children become more technically aware - leading to confusion and exposing children to possible danger.
The Barney and Echo Roadshow travelled to Bradford City on Thursday 29th September to deliver the important message of internet safety.
The engaging day-long event played host to over 100 children from 28 local schools, with exciting presentations from four speakers and multiple interactive exhibitions ensuring the day was thoroughly enjoyed by all!
Children were given the opportunity to take part in structured group activities that encouraged them to discuss issues surrounding e-safety. Presentations from West Yorkshire Police, ChatFOSS, One Day, and Link2ICT helped to educate and entertain the children. Each school that attended the Roadshow was provided with goody-bags and free classroom materials.
Bradford City Football Club’s mascot, Billy the Bantam, was on hand to greet the children. The football club and Osbourne Technologies provided extra goodies for the raffle. Schools were also treated to free posters, access to a mobile interactive tech vehicle, and the chance to get to grips with a virtual reality headset provided by O2 (...and much more – including a friendly dancing robot!).
