#WakeUpWednesday What parents need to know about 'Metaverse'

‘Metaverse’ is a relatively new term to many, however the concept has been around for some time. Videogames, for example, use many aspects of the metaverse; avatars, digital currency, mini-games, and open communication. A metaverse can also take many forms; Fortnite can be seen as a metaverse, as is Roblox.

Put simply, a metaverse is an online environment where people interact, play games and express themselves – but not everyone has good intentions. That’s why we’ve created this guide to help parents and carers understand exactly what a metaverse is all about.

Online safety and the dark web

The Child Exploitation and Online Protection Command (CEOP) of the National Crime Agency (NCA) has released resources for use by professionals and parents and carers to understand the dark web. The resources aim to better equip professionals, parents and carers to have conversations, if required, with young people who may already be using the dark web. Films and fact sheets have been created to aid understanding about what the dark web is and why some young people might access it.

Monkeypox

Monkeypox virus is an orthopoxvirus that causes human monkeypox, a viral disease with symptoms similar to smallpox, including fever and rash. Following the worldwide eradication of smallpox in 1980, monkeypox emerged as the most significant orthopoxvirus infection in humans. Cases are most often reported from rural areas of Central and West African countries, particularly in regions close to tropical rainforest where people may have contact with infected animals. Someone can become infected through direct contact with respiratory droplets of another person who has monkeypox in the home or in a health facility, or with contaminated materials such as bedding. Although these are the main modes of person-to-person transmission, monkeypox outbreaks tend to occur in small clusters of a few cases without leading to widespread community transmission. For this reason, outbreaks can be easily controlled when responded to rapidly. On several occasions, monkeypox has been reported in other regions due to importation by travellers or infected animals. This course provides a general introduction to the disease through a video and accompanying downloadable presentation that can be reviewed at your own pace. It is intended for health personnel responsible for prevention and control of monkeypox, and for the general public.
