This free online event Exploring Media Literacy is being hosted on 8 December 1:00–3:00pm for professionals working with children and young people by SWGfL. This event will bring together TikTok, Ofcom, DCMS along with SWGfL and the UK Safer Internet Centre to discuss media literacy.

With more time than ever being spent online, improving media literacy among professionals working with children is a key priority of the Government’s Online Media Literacy Strategy, launched earlier this year. The session will cover:

  • The steps TikTok is taking to protect young people, how to use settings on the platform and tips to improve your experience
  • The findings of TikTok's global research project on online challenges and hoaxes, including the publication of new online resources.
  • A new TikTok checklist to view and download from SWGfL, as well as details on the new SWGfL TikTok account.
  • Our own ProjectEVOLVE Toolkit based on insights from digital development in children and young people
  • Crucial information and updates from the Professionals Online Safety Helpline
  • Q&A with our expert speakers, panel and an exclusive opportunity to ask your questions to TikTok!

Please note, tickets are limited - book your free place here.
