what does the course cover

The basics course is designed to give you a firm grounding in fundamentals. After completing this course, you should be able to  quickly identify the key components and technology risks around the house and feel confident that your technology setup and landscape at home is child friendly and safe. 

We’ll discuss and cover what a typical digital landscape at home looks like, which might include things such as tablets, laptops, smart TVs, CCTV smart cameras, desktop computers, mobile phones, TV set-top boxes, games consoles, and your wifi router for example. 

We’ll then look at how to set things up and consider identities, device setup routines for desktops, laptops, tablets, and mobile phones, and look at a few physical setup considerations such as the ideal location for the devices. 

Finally, we’ll look at digital cleaning and tidying routines that you can follow to keep on top of things and the key behaviours and habits to master to keep technology from using your (and your children’s) time and attention on auto-pilot.
