My talk at the CyGen conference focused upon the adults and how we risk undermining messages about digital responsibility arguments by our own use of social media and the growth of privacy-intrusive programming. However, what struck me most about the event – and the project itself – was the input of the children. I particularly enjoyed attending an inspiring breakout session where the children talked about how they interviewed parents and teachers about online safety, using a PowerPoint presentation which they had prepared themselves. I learned a lot from this partnership approach that I would like to use in my further research.
