The Learning Support Department has the following strategic partners for the development of the prevention programmes:
Red PaPaz is a nonprofit corporation comprised of a network of mothers, fathers, and carers that aims to promote the protection of rights of children and adolescents in Colombia, as well as to strengthen the capacities of adults and social actors to ensure their effective implementation. This is carried out through actions focused on relevant issues that are based on evidence and proven good practices. As a result, Red PaPaz has become a national and international reference.
Additionally, Red PaPaz offers conferences to the school’s leaders, staff, and parents on various topics of interest such as the safe use of ICT, a healthy life, education for coexistence, protective environments, among others.
En TIC Confío
One of the fundamental courses of action of the Ministry of Information and Communication Technologies is to provide educational institutions with pedagogical support through conferences addressed to students, parents, and the community in general. These conferences focus on the responsible and conscious use of technology as well as on cybercrime prevention.
En TIC Confío is the strategy for promoting responsible use of the internet as well as new technologies of the Ministry of Information and Communications Technologies. It helps society to develop and interact responsibly with ICTs while promoting digital coexistence and zero tolerance for child sexual abuse material.
