In all sessions starting from the beginning of the academic year, as well as revisiting on a term basis; students are strongly encouraged to be positive citizens while using the Internet.
Students work through a variety of Cybersafety activities to increase their knowledge and understanding of Internet safety.
These are some of the areas that students explore:
- Internet Safety
- Search Engines for Primary Students
- Cybersafety – Digital Footprint, Digital Reputation
- Copyright /Digital Literacy/Plagiarism
- Privacy and Security
- eM@il etiquete
I have also developed a sequential program for students to develop their skills beginning in Prep (Foundation/Kindergarten Level) using a variety of resources from ACMA, eSafety Australia , Common Sense Media and Net Smarts Kids

2. STUDENT DIGITAL LICENCE
The eSmart Digital Licence is an online challenge which uses quizzes, videos and games to prepare Australian children (aged ten and over) to be smart, safe and responsible digital citizens.
The Digital Licence consists of eight learning modules which evaluate comprehension of key technology and cybersafety topics and equip children with the knowledge and skills they require to learn, play and socialise online. Each module takes approximately 15 minutes to complete.
In addition to teaching core digital skills, the Digital Licence will promote conversations about online safety between young people and their parents, carers and teachers.
