The use of technology has opened up a range of opportunities for people of all ages to engage in behaviours that might be considered beneficial, harmful, or criminal.

We will review some of the evidence around the alleged risks and benefits to health and wellbeing.

Finally we will critically consider some of the harm reduction strategies that have been proposed in an attempt to help children use technology safely.

Our Virtual Masterclasses

We're delivering our Masterclasses virtually at the moment, to continue allowing you access to our amazing sessions delivered by expert academics. Throughout the sessions we will aim to meet individual needs, allow space for reflection and include time for conversations to share experiences and knowledge within the 'virtual' room.

Our virtual Masterclasses are approximately an hour long, but may run longer if we have a lot of questions.

If you are a teacher or tutor and would like for your whole class to get involved, drop us an email at outreach@cumbria.ac.uk and we'll see how we can help you. Bespoke events may be possible for schools and colleges, at times that suit you, dependent on academic availability.

Our Virtual Outreach

During the unprecedented times of social distancing, our team remain on hand to support you. Over the coming weeks, we are ensuring there is something for everyone, whether you’re a future student, teacher or adviser. We’ve got you.

All our virtual outreach activities on offer have been developed to inform and motivate participants, and link to the Gatsby Benchmarks for Good Career Guidance. This report was redefined and published in January 2018. Laying out eight benchmarks, the report outlined good practice within careers guidance and an expectation that all secondary schools have a careers plan.

Our online Masterclasses meet benchmarks 4 & 7 (Linking curriculum learning to careers & Encounters with further and higher education).
