Inger Klesment

As a passionate advocate for online safety education, I specialize in teaching children aged 5-10 how to navigate the digital world securely through engaging methods such as movement and role-play. My innovative approach to digital safety education, through the development of interactive digital safety games, has been recognized by prestigious institutions such as the University of Tartu, the Education and Youth Board, and the Ministry of Education and Research in Estonia. My efforts culminated in winning an award at Voices, the European Festival of Journalism and Media Literacy in March (2024), showcasing the effectiveness and necessity of game-based learning in imparting digital security knowledge to over 6000 children in kindergartens and schools.

In addition to my work with children, I am dedicated to shaping the next generation of educators and youth workers by teaching media literacy gaming at the University of Tartu. My role extends to serving as a communication and media literacy specialist for the Baltic Engagement Centre for Combating Information Disorders (BECID), a research project led by the University of Tartu.
