About the Event

It’s no longer about taking candy from strangers but now about behaving safe online, internet challenges which have caused suicide and other disturbing tragedies.

  • Teaching children how to use tech by example: How parents use their devices sets the scene.
  • What parents need to know about sharing everything about their child online
  • The internet is forever: sending nudes, bullying behaviour, or conducting yourself in a less than positive light.
  • What “Taking Control” online means: A measured and informed approach to using social media.
  • How you can have courageous conversations with your children about their safety and online behaviour.

About The Speaker

Laila Sayed graduated from law at the University of Otago, New Zealand in 2020. Whilst at University she took a subject called, ‘law and emerging technologies’, which introduced her to the intersection of law and technology. A humanitarian at heart, this led Laila to think about the impact of these changes on human rights and the effect this would have on our communities. Laila has worked with ISMA for the past year and has a particular interest in the effect that social media has on mental health, human rights and children’s development.   The rapid introduction of technology has many consequences, most of them unseen, and it is these considerations which Laila is most interested in. Growing up at the start of the ‘big tech’ era, Laila has a unique understanding of the way that technology can improve our lives, and an insight into the dark side of tech.
