Presentations by International Experts On The Anti Internet Child Exploitation Team
Children need us more than they ever have in the history of the world.”— Charlene Doak-GebauerLONDON, ONTARIO, CANADA, August 19, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Internet Sense First (located in Canada), and their speaking team, the AICET Council (Anti Internet Child Exploitation Team), are hosting an International Virtual Summit “The Internet: Are Children In Charge?”. This summit is scheduled to be streamed from 8:00 a.m. October 30th to 11:30 p.m. October 31st. Registrants will be able to access the summit online over a 35-hour period, to accommodate various schedules and time zones.
The unique Theory of Digital Supervision, created by the Founder and Chair, Charlene Doak-Gebauer (a computer specialist in education and network administrator) will be supported by various experts in their respective specialities. The speakers on the AICET Council are from Canada, the United States, and Spain. This summit offers convenience for attendance, and many takeaways to help registrants proactively protect children online. Target audience – parents, caregivers, professional allies – all adults who work with or care for children.
Professional allies will be interested in learning more about liabilities when working with children who are using digital devices while in their care. The degree of vulnerabilities for children, and the degree of liabilities for professional allies, are increasing and changing on a daily basis. Professional admission tickets provide an opportunity to obtain a Certificate of Completion For Digital Supervision Training, for the year 2020 – which will help to enhance a portfolio, provide necessary information for volunteers, or to possibly increase professional hours required for renewal of registration of professional designations. General admission tickets are being offered for anyone not requiring a Certificate of Completion. COVID 19 has caused an increase in predation online, which is very concerning. This is so extensive, predators now have an online handbook on how best to lure children.
Where to register and purchase tickets? Tickets can be purchased through Eventbrite.ca (CAN funds). The goal of the AICET Council is to expand the knowledge of Digital Supervision within the adult population, in order to ensure the proactive online protection of children. “The talent and expertise of our speakers and their information is rare to have on one virtual stage for a conference.”, says Doak-Gebauer. Time commitment? Approximately four hours. The speakers make every minute count in their presentations.
