The main focus of Safelyonline project is the improvement of online medialiteracy levels among children and young poeple through the extensive media literacy education of their parents. More concretely, in the framework of this project, Gezinsbond and Child Focus (Belgian Safer Internet Centre) have been offering training to parents about the online media their children use daily. With about 150 training sessions every year, we are able to reach 4,500 parents. Since autumn 2017, the training offer consists of 5 programmes: ‘Social media’, ‘Gaming’, ‘Internet and privacy’, ‘Cyberbullying’ and ‘Online relationships and sexuality’. In each programme, testimonials from youths, parents and experts are the central point. Via a quiz and a game of propositions, the participants are invited to think along and share experiences. Through all of that, they receive a lot of concrete, educational tips.
