Ci plays its part for a better and safer Internet!

Today (February 9th) is Safer Internet Day with the theme of ‘Play your part for a better internet’ and Corsham Institute (Ci) has been playing its part as well!

Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre the celebration sees hundreds of organisations get involved to help promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people. (www.saferinternet.org.uk)

Globally, Safer Internet Day is celebrated in over a hundred countries, coordinated by the joint Insafe/INHOPE network, with the support of the European Commission, and national Safer Internet Centres across Europe.

Safer Internet Day offers the opportunity to highlight positive uses of technology and to explore the role we all play in helping to create a better and safer online community.

Ci’s Digital Corsham initiative has been working with pupils and staff at a local primary school to develop a video about the safer use of the Internet that is being made available to local schools across our Digital Community programme.

Called ‘Cassie’s Online Story’, it features a primary school age character filmed in stop frame animation, who sets up an online social media account without their parent’s permission and is then subject to cyber-bullying. The video is packed with practical tips and advice from school pupils to stay safe online.

The video is backed by a second video aimed at parents outlining how important the subject of a Safer Internet is. The videos will be premiered today in front of pupils and parents, and can be watched below.

The videos were developed, filmed and edited by Ci’s Creative Digital and Media Apprentices.

Cassie’s Online Story

This e-Safety video is a joint project between the Corsham Regis Primary Academy, the Corsham Institute, Digital Corsham and Corsham TV. It was inspired and produced with the School’s Year 6 Pupil Leadership Team for Safer Internet Day.

E-Safety Guide for Parents

This video is a guide to parents about e-Safety and is the companion video to the pupil-focused video ‘Cassie’s Online Story’. It was produced for Corsham Regis Primary Academy for Safer Internet Day by the Corsham Institute, Digital Corsham and Corsham TV.

CORSHAM TV IS ONE YEAR OLD!

Launched in January 2015, Corsham’s own local digital tv channel Corsham Television is now one year old.
It has already produced over 110 timely and relevant video stories about Corsham and the surrounding area, interviewed 91 people and its videos have been streamed for viewing over 20,000 times, all via the Corsham TV website www.corshamtv.tv.
Our local digital television channel is modelled on the mainstream TV catch-up services and is available anywhere 24/7, with videos viewed in themed playlists.
Corsham TV is part of the Digital Corsham initiative, set up and funded by the not-for-profit research charity, Corsham Institute.
Corsham TV supports community groups and events, local businesses and local people who have a story to tell, as well as conducting regular interviews with local MPs and both Wiltshire and Town Councillors.
Its first success was its local coverage of the General Election in May 2015 where it covered local hustings, streamed the results live and had the first video interview with the new MP, Michelle Donelan.
Later this year with its local community radio station partner, KIK RADIO, it will begin to stream live Wiltshire Council’s Corsham Area Board and the Corsham Town Council meetings to open them up to a wider digital online audience.
In the run up to Christmas the series of videos ’12 Days of a Corsham Christmas’ attracted record audiences and featured many community groups and local businesses, including the children of Corsham Primary School singing festive songs, with excerpts from their Nativity Plays.
The Chair of Corsham Town Council, Ruth Hopkinson, reflecting on the first year of Corsham TV told us;
“Corsham TV;
- has given the residents of Corsham the opportunity to find out what is actually going on in the town,
- has shown Corsham off to its best advantage,
- is a great showpiece for all that is good in the town;
- has given the opportunity for local people to have their say;
- makes people feel good about the town they live in. It turned negative publicity into positive.”

Corsham TV engages with the community on social media and through regular public events in the town and surrounding areas.
It can be viewed at www.corshamtv.tv, on Twitter @CorshamTV and on Facebook/CorshamTelevision.
