Date Created: 3rd Jul 2018
‘I think that by now most of us are aware of the double edged sword of technology. On the positive side it’s everywhere, affordable, connects us, used by most, instant, visual, audible and readable and on the negative side it’s all of those things too.
Like it or not it is hard to avoid.
When working with young people or vulnerable adults it is important to think about how we manage and mitigate risk around digital media and technology, as quick as you get a handle on it there’s a new app, scam or way of getting round things.
It takes flexible thinking to keep up to date and sense check what we do… so here are the Seven P’s, a set of principles to help you think about your procedures, practice and policies.’ – Lesley Wood, Artswork Professional Development trainer
