To help children stay safe online, Hector’s World has developed a webcam cover for children to use. This simple paper cover can prompt a valuable discussion between parent and child, or teacher and student, about what a webcam is and how to manage its use safely.
Using the cover means the camera becomes ‘default off’, which is best with a young child. We suggest to children: ‘Know when you’re on show’.
You can download and print out the paper webcam covers (below) in a number of designs with Hector’s World characters in versions for laptop and desktop webcam models. A background discussion document for teachers is available for more information.
Children can visit the Workshop in Silicon Deep, download and print out the free webcam cover to use with computers at home or school.
