Offsite Activities to Promote Web Filtering: November 2016

In November 2016, Digital Arts was invited to speak at the following organizations:

At the Foundation for In-Service Training and Welfare of The Private School, approximately thirty assistant principals from private elementary school in the Kanto region gathered to learn risks and dangers associated with smartphones, using scenarios from Digital Arts’ Simulating Smartphone Dangers App, and learned the benefits of web filtering as an effective tool to keep students away from cyber troubles.
With the Ota City Special Education Elementary and Jr. High School PTA Committee and Media Development Research Institute Inc., Digital Arts served on the panel of the Cyber Morale Caravan and participated in a discussion on the topic “What is Cyber Morale? Reaffirming day-to-day morals and attributes of cyber society to inspire young people to cultivate their creative confidence”.
For other organizations, Digital Arts introduced the Simulating Smartphone Dangers App explaining the risks involved with internet use and the benefits of web filtering software, tailoring seminar contents to reach teachers, parents and students at their appropriate level of understanding.
As part of its public awareness campaign, Digital Arts delivers customized lectures and offers programs that are appropriate to regional needs, age, communication environment, cell-phone ownership, and the level of comprehension on cyber literacy by parents.
