I am a freelance journalist and blogger interested in media, social media and all things digital. I worked as a social reporter at the Young People and the Digital World 2010 conference alongside Tim Davies and David Wilcox. You will find a series of blog posts I've written about it on this site.

In the next few months, I will be helping create new exciting content for the WISE KIDS' revamped website, so watch this space for announcements.

(Part 6) Personal highlights: stats and safety

Internet - Good Or Bad? I, as many other delegates must have done, first attended the WISE KIDS-WISP conference expecting it to be mainly about internet safety.

(Part 5) Digital and ageless: social reporting and our young reporters

Huw Bryant, Lowri Fflur Davies, Eleri Fflur and Lowri Jos were third year media students from Trinity University College Carmarthen .

They kindly volunteered their time at the WISE KIDS - WISP conference to work as social reporters (see blog post 1), and after only a very short induction by Tim and David, in which they were shown how to use Flip cameras (photo right) and upload videos, they were thrown straight into the deep…

(Part 4) All the world's a stage: Ysgol Preseli brings the house down

(Part 3) So what do young people really think?

If you ask any of the conference delegates what the highlights were for them at the WISE KIDS - WISP ' Young People in a Digital World 2010 (YPDW2010), you can bet the majority will respond "the young people".

(Part 2) The keynote: everything starts with Tanya Byron

Professor Tanya Byron kicked off the WISE KIDS - WISP conference in Swansea with a video-taped Keynote address, as she was unable to attend in person.



Tanya Byron is a clinical psychologist and child therapist, who, in 2007, was commissioned by the Prime Minister to conduct an independent review on inappropriate material for children and young people on the internet…
