February: Public Awareness Raising Activity of Filtering outside the company
As part of the Public Awareness Raising Activity of filtering, we cooperate with various events and respond to external requests to dispatch lecturers to workshops on internet literacy education and filtering.
In February 2017, Digital Arts was invited to speak at the following organizations:
・Hiratsuka City Asahi Elementary School (Kanagawa Prefecture)
・Information Technology Promotion Agency (IPA)
・NPO Japan Network Security Association (JNSA)
・Hyogo Prefecture Police
・Foundation for MultiMedia Communications
・Kinki Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications Office
・St. Mary’s Elementary School
・National Consumer Association Hokkaido Prefecture branch
・Industry-University Cooperative Promotion Project Council for Cyber Space Threats (Niigata Prefecture)
February 10 & 11:
At Fukuoka Prefecture, we gathered parents, education officials and police-related officials and held courses using smartphone equipment to experiment on safety measures combining filtering and function restrictions and the differences between the behaviors of “i-FILTER” with the normal browsers.
At Hyogo Prefecture Police Department, we explained the use of filtering by participating in a panel discussion on the theme of “Today’s internet usage for children”.
February 25 & 26:
At National Consumer Association Hokkaido Prefecture branch, consultation staff of about 30 people were gathered to explain the dangers of smartphones while using the “Digital Arts’ Simulating Smartphone Dangers App”. Smartphone equipment were used to experience the difference between the behaviors of the normal browser and with “i-FILTER”. For other organizations, according to their position, we aimed for faculty and staff, parents and students, and explained the dangers in using the internet and how to use filtering as a countermeasure, using the “Digital Arts’ Simulating Smartphone Dangers App”.
In Digital Arts, we examine the lecture contents according to client’s intention and conduct nationwide public awareness raising activities. We will continue to provide programs tailored to client’s region, age-appropriateness, communication environment, mobile/smartphone ownership, and understanding of parents’ internet literacy.
