Creating Presentations with AI can be done with several apps. One that I have played with is Gamma.
With absolutely minimal prompts I asked it to create an “Online safety for children under-11” presentation – I didn’t give it any extra info. Within seconds it produced the following presentation text, beautifully presented with images! If I was going to do a parent’s evening about Online safety this week, this would be my starting point, – about ten seconds worth of work so far! I know it needs editing, I may wish to add more, eliminate some, add links, etc, but what a brilliant starting point:
Online Safety for Kids Under 11
Welcome to our presentation on online safety for kids under 11. In today’s world, children have easier access to technology than ever before. As technology evolves, so too does online safety. In this presentation, we’ll explore tips for ensuring online safety for children under 11. by Carol Rainbow
Why is online safety important for kids?
- Prevent cyberbullying
- Online safety is crucial in helping children avoid
- cyberbullying, which can
- cause long-term emotional distress and have negative effects on self-esteem.
- Protect personal information
- Children need to be educated on the importance of not
- sharing personal information online, or else they may risk exposing themselves to
- dangers such as identity theft or fraud.
- Inappropriate content
- Without proper online safety measures in place, children may be exposed to
- inappropriate content that could mentally and emotionally harm them.
Cyber Threats for Kids
Online predators use the internet to take advantage of children by grooming, befriending, and coercing them into inappropriate relationships, which can lead to violence, sexual exploitation, or child abuse.
Scams and frauds
Scammers may use children’s lack of experience to trick them into falling for a fraudulent scheme or a virus-laden app or game, which can harm not only their devices but also expose personal information.
Phishing scams target children and adults alike, using fake emails, messages, or websites to trick users into revealing sensitive information such as credentials or payment details.
Malware and viruses
Malware and viruses can infiltrate children’s devices and compromise their personal information, damage their system, or even spy on them through camera or microphone without their knowledge.
Tips for Parents to Ensure Online Safety
- Develop open communication with children and encourage them to share their online experiences. Monitor their online activity, phone usage, and time spent on devices.
- Teach them about online privacy and security, and the importance of strong passwords.
- Use parental control software and settings, and block inappropriate websites or apps.
- Encourage children to use social media and messaging apps responsibly and not share private information with strangers.
Safe Browsing Habits for Kids
- Don’t share personal info – Instruct children never to share personal information such as full name, address, phone number, email, or school name with strangers online.
- Log out and shut it down when not in use. Teach them to log out of their accounts and shut down computers, phones, or tablets.
- Use trusted websites – Encourage children to access only age-appropriate, reputable websites, and not click on suspicious links or pop-ups.
- Be cautious of strangers – Teach children never to accept friend requests from strangers or agree to meet up with them without parental permission.
How to Teach Children about Cyberbullying
- Define – Explain what cyberbullying is, including its types, and how it can affect victims.
- Encourage Empathy – Teach and encourage children to respect and empathize with their classmates and online friends and to understand the impact of their online behaviors.
- Establish Consequences – Clarify that cyberbullying is not acceptable and that there are consequences for any form of bullying. Establish house-rules and school policies to protect the victims and prevent bullying.

All good quality content as a starting point – and odd “or” added at the end – but expect to make edits. Creating Presentations with AI can be an absolute time saver – I will attach both the online safety one and one about the arrival of the Romans – again, nothing was used to prompt it except the title, imagine if you offered more! Gamma offers lots several plans, I have played with the free version. It also offers inspiration, help, exports, editing, etc. It could be a useful teacher resource.
