Is today´s teacher education up to speed on the world of our kids? Is it able to give teacher education students the knowledge necessary to link Piaget, Vygotsky and different pedagogical theories to the media reality of our children?
If not, how can we expect teachers to help prevent abuse, sexual and otherwise, of children in digital media?
This and other highly fascinating questions and expert advice will be brought before you on this year´s Getting Involved conference. And for those who cannot appear at the conference center in Mo i Rana, a live feed of the conference will be placed at the conference WebTV page.
The feed will be stored as part of our ongoing documentation of our work against sexual abuse of children in digital media.
Since the fall of 2002, Department of Computer Science, Nesna University College, has been working with a project called “Getting involved”. The project was a part of the undergraduate course in Computer Science, and the course Social Informatics. The main focus of the project is to try to fight the constant sexual abuse of children on the Internet with information and awareness projects directed both towards the computer students of Nesna University College and towards the local computer industry and local primary, secondary and upper secondary level schools.
