The President of the Office of Electronic Communications Anna Streżyńska consented to hold honorary patronage over an educational event, organized by one of the mobile operators.
We use mobile phones more and more and we, as adults, not always know how to avoid associated mistakes. Children, who are a growing group of mobile telephony users, are even more unaware of how to protect themselves.
A non-commercial, educational event organized by one of the mobile operators, within the scope of corporate social responsibility along with unique character of ‘Mt First Mobile Phone’ are a step in the right direction. This is why the President of the Office of Electronic Communications decided to become an honorary patron of the event, supporting fully its educational dimension.
My First Mobile Phone
The aim of the event ‘My First Mobile Phone’ is to draw attention of adults and children alike to dangers and risks associated with using a mobile phone. A set of rules and recommended behaviours which will protect our children is one of the priorities of our common efforts, hopefully becoming an example to other similar initiatives.
We live in an interactive world where a computer and a mobile phone are everyday, indispensible tools. This is why, it is so important to promote rules of ‘healthy’ mobile phone usage, especially in relation to the youngest Users.
Parents frequently purchase advanced mobile phone models for their kids. Because of their high value, these devices may attract theft or mugging, exposing children to all associated dangers. Additionally, it is very important for us, as parents, to teach children how to manage financial resources available for phone services. It is important for pre-paid or post-paid amounts not to be too high, yet allowing our children constant communication with us. Finally, it is fundamental that our children become more and more aware of the responsibility for themselves and others by being fully capable of using life-saving emergency numbers.
Education is very important in our lives, especially in the lives of the younger ones. Let us try to encourage our children to begin a learning and discovering process of anything related to mobile phones by first talking to us, the parents. The next step might entail information available at www.mojapierwszakomorka.pl. Let us be close to our children so that we can show them how to learn from life experiences and seek answers to arising questions.
A group of renowned specialists (psychologists and educators) together with the organizer of the event and institutional partners will prepare the educational background, ensuring that the event goals remain coherent with undertaken measures and the main character of the action ‘My First Mobile Phone’ – Fonio will teach children how to use mobile phones in a ‘healthy’ way.
