March 3 & 4:
At Fukuoka Prefecture, parents, educators, and police officials gathered and used actual smartphones to experience the difference between a standard browser and i-FILTER. They also learned safety measures of combining web filtering with feature restrictions.
At Urawa City Board of Education, students representing nine public junior high schools came together for a workshop on how to promote the smartphone rules these students created in June 2016.
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.
