Young people today are immersed in digital technologies. They use the internet and mobile phones to socialise, study, exchange ideas and play. While online activity has many benefits, there are also risks.
To help your children stay safe online, Jindalee State School is hosting a Cybersmart Outreach—Internet Safety Awareness presentation. Designed for parents, teachers and students, this presentation is provided by the Australian Communications and Media Authority (the ACMA) as part of a national program of cybersmart initiatives.
The Cybersmart Outreach—Internet Safety Awareness presentation is thorough and non-technical. It covers a range of issues including:
• the ways children use the internet and emerging technologies
• potential risks for children online, such as cyberbullying, identity theft, inappropriate contact and exposure to inappropriate content
• tips to help children stay safe online.
The presentation is conducted by an ACMA Cybersmart trainer and is free of charge.
Jindalee State School is committed to helping students develop appropriate behaviours when using digital technologies, both at school and home. Our program of internet safety initiatives includes:
• cyberbullying and cybersafety lessons in classes
• parent information sessions
• Cybersmart Help button installed on all school-owned computers
• cybersafety professional development sessions for teachers
• BYOD and 1-to-1 Laptop Handbooks, Agreement Forms and Acceptable Use Policies
The Cybersmart Outreach—Internet Safety Awareness presentation will be held on:
Thursday 6 November in Kirinari at 7:00pm
