In September, Edge Hill will be hosting a debate on Britain’s Digital Future led by Professor Tanya Byron:
The role of the internet, safety online and digital inclusion are some of the topics that will be debated at an interactive panel discussion with some of the country’s most eminent leading voices on digital media.
Edge Hill Chancellor and Government Adviser on child internet safety Professor Tanya Byron will chair a discussion with Government Champion for digital inclusion Martha Lane Fox, Anthony Lilley, CEO of media production company Magic Lantern and Lord David Putnam, BAFTA-winning film producer, Chancellor of Open University and chairman of digital marketing agency Profero.
The audience will have the chance to put questions to the panel and can have their thoughts on the presentations represented through an interactive voting system in place on the evening.
As part of this event, Edge Hill has partnered with Race Online 2012 which aims to get as close to 100% of the population online by the time of the London Olympics.
