Hope this helps a little!

Explain the risks and the possible consequences for children and young people of being online and of using a mobile phone.

Children and young people are open to many risks while being online or using their mobile phones, they may be lured into giving personal information; name, age, address and telephone numbers which could be used for identity theft or fraud.
Cyber bullying; this may include sending unpleasant texts, emails or instant messaging. A child or young person may find cruel messages or pictures about themselves and having their username stolen to spread lies or rumours about someone else. Techniques used by a cyber bully involves setting up websites to target certain individuals and inviting others to post hate comments about that person.
A child or young person may unknowingly download viruses and malware; a programme that can attach itself to another programme, if this is opened through a spam email it can then damage or create files and generate unwanted behaviour to your computer.
Young people also use mobile phones to send images of themselves to their friends or publish them on the internet, once that image has been published then the sender has lost the power as to what happens to it, it may then be used in contexts other than what it was originally intended for.
Even more seriously they may be groomed by individuals or paedophile rings that use the internet and mobile technology to identify and target potential victims. Sexual predators may use fake information to get close to children or young people i.e. a false name, age and information.

Dr Tanya Byron outlined in her 2008 report ‘Safer children in a digital world’ that everyone had a role to play in empowering children and young people to stay safe while enjoying new technologies, just as it is everyone’s responsibility to keep children safe in a non digital world.
Key points in the report were as follows;
• That the safety of children should be a vital concern for parents and for society.
• The risks to children and young people of potentially harmful and inappropriate material.
• Efforts should be decisive in minimizing the availability of harmful and inappropriate material in popular parts of the internet.
• Parents play a major role in overseeing children’s access to material on the internet.
• Providing children and parents with appropriate guidelines, clear standards, signposts and somewhere to go when things go wrong.
• Video games must now be clearly labelled with age ratings, which are represented by a logo on the back of the game that represents each age group.
• Computers that are sold for home use should be kite marked with parental control measures.

Along with technology a new sense of understanding and responsibility is needed in working together to help keep children and young people safe when using the internet and mobile phones.

Describe ways of reducing risk to children and young people from:

* Social networking
* Internet use
* Buying online
* Using a mobile phone

Social networking; In order to reduce the risks to children and young people they have to be aware of the potential online dangers.
Never to download images from an unknown source as they could be of an explicit nature.
Chose a screen name that could be used by either gender.
Not to open emails as they could contain viruses.
To stop any email communication or instant messaging conversations if the person starts to ask questions that are too personal or sexually suggestive.
Children and young people should only visit chat rooms that are well monitored and never to accept offers of a private conversation.
Befriend strangers as people are not always who they say they are and they could be online predators.
Do not give out any personal information i.e. name, address, age, school as this could be used to groom a young child or identity theft of a teenager.

Buying online; to reduce the risks when buying online always use secure and trusted sites that use ‘hppts://’ in the address bar as identity theft is a common problem when buying online, there is always a danger that other people will attempt to hack your computer to steal personal details, this can be reduced by using firewall which can help by preventing malicious software from gaining access to information on your computer. Credit card details may be stolen if they are used on a non secure site, you can prevent this by using a secure payment system such as PayPal which will then enable you to buy from multi online stores in the knowledge that details will not be stolen. Try and make passwords as long as possible, preferably combinations of letters and numbers, using lower and upper case and changing passwords as frequently as possible.
Using a mobile phone; as more and more children and young people are using mobile phones to communicate with their friends then the risk becomes higher that something may happen. To reduce these risks mobile phone retailers now market phones with filtering software, this will stop children and young people from accessing inappropriate websites or images. Reminding children or young people that they should never give out their mobile number to strangers or other young people that they do not trust as images that are sent via their mobile can be changed and shared online, once that image has been sent then they have lost control of it. Never use phones on public transport i.e. tubes, buses for fear of being attacked and the phone stolen.






As part of a government backed campaign; ‘Zip it, block it, flag it’ was launched in order to help children keep safe while on the internet. It offers tips for parents and children on how to stay safe online.
Buying online; to reduce the risks when buying online always use secure and trusted sites that use ‘hppts://’ in the address bar as identity theft is a common problem when buying online, there is always a danger that other people will attempt to hack your computer to steal personal details, this can be reduced by using firewall which can help by preventing malicious software from gaining access to information on your computer.

heres what i put and have this section signed off hope it helps
7.1 & 7.2
Everybody who works with children needs to be aware of the increasing risks to children from being online and from the use of mobile phones. E-safety is becoming a bigger issue as technology increases and advances. Schools now have policies to protect children staff and parents for e-safety. At my setting all children and parents are required to sign a e-safety agreement to show they are aware of the rules and accept them. However this does not protect them at home. So children should also be made aware of the risks and consequences. Schools usually discuss this during ICT lessons.
Social networking sites – Children should be reminded never to give personal details such as phone numbers photographs or email addresses to people online. They should also limit any other details like what school they go to what clubs they are in as this information can easily be put together to gain an insight into the person’s life. Social networking sites can easily be accessible by others and parents should always check that privacy settings are not open to all. But using networking sites people can pretend to be someone they are not i.e. a 30year old man could pretend to be a 17yr old boy therefore no personal details should be given. Networking sites became more heightened in the public when the tragic case of Ashleigh Hall hit the headlines in 2009 as she had befriended her murderer on a social networking site.
Internet use- children in schools will be unable to access any material inappropriate due to filters which school computers are required to have. However if home computers do not have filters or settings to protect children whilst using the internet they may not be safe online. Children are constantly reminded how to stay safe online. In my setting all children in KS2 have recently had a talk with the local police who came in and talked to them about how to stay safe whilst using the internet the do’s and the don’ts.
Email – children should be aware that they should only open emails and files from people they know. This is because people they don’t know may send viruses or inappropriate images. The child does not know who or what that email contains. Children should also be made aware that if they are sent anything that is hurtful or unpleasant they must always tell an adult.
Buying online – children must be careful when buying online. Some older children will have their own debit cards, however a younger child may ask the parent for their card details or use stored online vouchers to purchase online items. Children should therefore be warned about identity theft and of putting information online where others could see it.
Mobile phones- children who are given mobile phones to use often for safety reasons like walking home etc. they should be told not to use it often when in public. This is because they can be a cause for muggings and thefts in particular if the item is up to date and maybe top of the range. They can also be a way of bullying for children in the same way as social network sites and emails.
To reduce any risks to children the children should be spoken to about all aspects and also be warned about what can and can’t happen and also about the dos and don’ts.
