The Day for Safer Internet organised by Nebuď oběť! association
The occasion of the Day for Safer Internet was held on 8. 2. 2011 in the Dr. Martínka branch of the Library of Ostrava city. Our association in cooperation with the Library organised a mass meeting of young readers and their parents who came to hear the lecture about the Risks of the Internet and Communication Technologies. The lecture dealt with problematic sharing of personal data and the current issue of cyberbullying. Some of the children confessed they had experienced cyberbullying themselves. Thus, we believe that they received instructions on how to behave carefully on the Internet.
We would like to thank the Dr. Martínka branch of the Library of Ostrava city for providing space and time to organise the travelling exhibitions and lectures.
Thanks for the lecture to Nebuď oběť! association:
“Hello, I would like to thank Mgr. Lukáš Látal for the meeting he had in our branch on the occasion of the Day for Safer Internet. The issue of hazards and risks on the Internet has been explained very carefully and the model situation in the video caused the correct response of children. Illustrations (chat, sharing personal data, photos and others, at first innocent, information) completely uncompromisingly but very considerately and gently materialised huge danger that is lurking for children if they do not follow rules for safe usage of the Internet. Meeting was attended approximately by 30 listeners and there were also adults among them. Once again, I would like to thank Mr. Látal for a very interesting lecture and I hope that our cooperation will continue.
