Digital literacy gives children and young people the skills to use online spaces responsibly, helping them understand the risks and benefits of informed decision-making and responsible online behaviour. In the Metaverse, ensuring the safety of young users starts with empowering them. This involves a wide variety of tools that create a user-friendly environment where children can learn and navigate the digital world securely.
Our speaker Elyse Lee, Head of Global Policy and Engagement at Zepeto provides a unique insight into what Zepeto has done to empower the young people who navigate their Metaverse.
Join us on Feb 15th for a deep dive into the safety measures ZEPETO develops and implements in their Metaverse to keep their users safe, informed, and empowered. What tools do they develop and use to detect harm? What features do they utilise to inform and empower their users? How do they educate their community about online safety?
We recommend this webinar to hotline and helpline staff, industry and policymakers.
