The growth of digital media has revolutionised children's lives. Whether or not adults are keeping up with them, children are learning new skills, finding information, and developing relationships and networks online. As technology advances and children find new and innovative ways to use it, the UK Council for Child Internet Safety continues working to keep children safe online - wherever they are.
Keynote Speakers included:
Bill Thompson New media pioneer
Professor Tanya Byron Clinician, broadcaster and author
Tim Loughton MP, Minister for Children and Families
Ed Vaizey MP, Minister for Culture, Communications and Creative Industries
James Brokenshire MP, Minister for Crime and Security
Recognising that some Council members have been active in the field for many years, whilst others are new to the agenda, the 2011 Summit offered everyone a chance to gain fresh perspectives and make new connections.
This Summit was a unique opportunity to come together as a committed and diverse group of professionals to challenge each other and refocus our thoughts on which child safety strategies can have the most impact.
