Back to school

The first weeks of a new school year can be challenging for students, parents and teachers. It is however also an ideal moment to get children thinking about what it means to be a respectful citizen in today's complex online and offline world. The Back-to-school leaflet offers a few practical ideas for parents and teachers on how to go about it. It is available in several languages. Check it out!

Safety Advisory Board

Insight is in California this week, attending Facebook’s international Safety Advisory Board meeting. We’ve been a member of the board for the past 7 years because you can’t work with children and teens successfully without a deep understanding of the environments they use for learning and socializing. The role of the board is to advise the Meta team on safety and well-being risks of next-generation tools. We also get to share information from our experience in Europe and North Africa with board members active in very different parts of the world such as India, Taiwan and Brazil. Insight’s users reap the benefits of our collaboration with Meta, and the support we get as advisors enables us to invest in research and programmes that make our efforts even more effective.

Anti-bullying campaign

Bullying is a challenge for most young people, and even more so in Morocco. Yesterday Insight joined forces with the national government, NGOs, the CoE and the EC, and several innovative teens to launch an anti-bullying campaign that will run until Safer Internet Day in February 2022.

Act for eliminating exclusion and bullying online and offline

Approximately 1 child in 3 is cyberbullied at some point during their childhood and adolescence, and 2 in 5 victims consider that speaking about their problem to a parent or teacher will only make the issue worse. As schools and communities traditionally focus on bullying every November, the Insight team has worked with the Council of Europe to create tips for parents and teachers.

  • Digital Citizenship

    Digital CitizenshipDigital citizenship competences (values, attitudes, skills and knowledge) shape how we act in the digital world, and how ethically it will evolve. We work in multi-stakeholder partnership with institutions, industry, national governments, universities and NGOs worldwide to develop educational tools and services to empower young people as responsible digital citizens. 2019 has seen the launch of the Council of Europe’s Digital Citizenship Education Handbook co-authored by Insight experts and, on November 21, the adoption of a recommendation to integrate digital citizenship education into school curricula in its 47 member countries.

  • Data Protection

    HaveYourSayEducation alone is not enough to protect children. It’s necessary to be involved in research in digital technology, and work hand in hand with industry, governments and international institutions to future-proof tools and platforms, shape policy and ensure broad reach. Insight is part of Facebook’s Safety Advisory Board, Twitter’s Trust and Safety Council, and the Council of Europe’s Digital Citizenship Education working group. It’s proud to be recognised as a source of creative ideas and a trusted partner to dozens of such entities, yet to speak out loudly and clearly when children’s rights are at stake.

  • Anti Bullying

    Bullying2Anti-bullying initiatives include the EU-funded programme ENABLE, subject of a publication with the Council of Europe entitled Bullying: perspectives, practice and insights. 

    We actively support the NoBully Power of Zero Power of Zero anti-bullying programme (USA-based), and implemented workshops and more with the Ministry of Education in Seychelles.

  • Child Protection

    ProtectionThe most powerful way to help children become responsible internet users and stay safe online is through education. We create and implement innovative approaches, tools and publications for children and their families, teachers and community. One such tool is the Council of Europe’s Internet Literacy Handbook (4th revised edition), co-authored by Insight experts since its inception in 2003. The 2019 SMART bus tour is another example, now being rolled out by magicians in secondary schools in the Netherlands and Belgium. SMART sums up the Insight approach - Social sense; My footprint; Access to opportunities; Rights and responsibilities; Trust.
