NetSupport is helping to raise awareness of Safer Internet Day, a global event promoting the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.
It takes place today (9th February) with the theme Play your part for a better internet!
The theme looks at the issues and concerns that young people have when they’re online, as well as schools’ and parents’ roles in helping them respond appropriately to negative content – so that we can all ‘play our part for a better internet’.
Giving schools and colleges a significant helping hand with their duty to protect students’ online safety, NetSupport has developed new technology that not only helps to keep students safe on the web by monitoring and restricting the scope of their internet use, but also provides them with an avenue to report any concerns they may have – in confidence – to a trusted member of staff. These safeguarding tools are supplied as part of NetSupport’s IT asset management solution for education, NetSupport DNA, a solution already helping schools to manage their IT assets, reduce operational costs and improve system security.
