'Logging-Off', an educational campaign produced and fund- ed by Fundacion Mapfre, raises awareness about internet ad- diction among school children through workshops streamed live into a classroom via interac- tive whiteboard technology. This way students receive a fun and interactive lesson on healthy in- teraction with the online world. The internet is continually evolving and when harnessed can lead to great and positive changes in the world. Yet inter- net addiction may also lead to depression and anti-social be- haviour among other things. Throughout the campaign, COVID regulations impeded Logging Off facilitators from en- tering the classrooms physical- ly. This was however mitigated through a further investment in high quality conferencing cam- eras and microphones that made engaging virtual interaction pos- sible. As part of Logging Off's educa- tional materials, a short come- dic film featuring James Ryder and Thomas Camilleri was also produced. The film was used to break the ice through laughter while also serving as a spring- board into various avenues of conversation in relation to the topic. 'Logging Off' was extremely well received by students, teach- ers and administrators alike. The campaign's success further motivated Fundacion MAPFRE to create even more education- al materials related to this cam- paign. The new content covers topics such as online bullying, internet privacy and even sex- ting and are a great resource for anyone looking for tools to edu- cate young people on the subject of internet use.
