Online streaming is a seamless way of watching or listening to all sorts of content such as TV shows, films, sports highlights, and music, over an internet connection, without having to download a file or store it on your device.

It can be done from almost any device and has become hugely popular as broadband connections have become fast enough to show the data in real time. However, whilst there are many positives that come with live streaming, it creates a worldwide platform for unsuitable content to be streamed and creates a host of dangers for children.

That’s why it’s important that both trusted adults and children understand what online streaming is all about, what type of content is available and what measures they can take to ensure that children and young people engage in live-streaming online safely and securely.

This webinar is presented by broadcaster and online safety advocate Myleene Klass. Its content has been developed in collaboration with our expert Heather Cardwell, a practising online safety lead who is CE-OP (Child Exploitation Online Protection) trained.
