EDUCATING EXPERTS. TRAIN-THE-TRAINER APPROACH IN THE SCHOOL SYSTEM TO PREVENT ONLINE ABUSE AND EXPLOITATION OF CHILDREN
Published: 20 Oct 2023
Abstract: In the contemporary digital era, children are more exposed to online platforms than ever before, increasing their vulnerability to various forms of abuse and exploitation. The challenges posed by online exploitation and abuse are profound and complex, demanding comprehensive and holistic solutions. One of the promising strategies that has emerged within the school system is the "Train the Trainer" approach, aiming to capacitate teachers and school staff with the necessary skills to educate children about online safety. By equipping educators with specialized knowledge and skills, a safer learning environment can be created that fosters the holistic development of students. This article aims to elucidate the Train-the-Trainer approach as a comprehensive solution to empower educators to recognize, address, and ultimately prevent abuse and exploitation. Furthermore, it will present the case of a project funded by the European Commission, which successfully addresses the problematic areas through trainings and education.
