 Build A Budd:e Internet Character

Hello Year 3 Students, Parents and Visitors;

This term in ICT sessions, students will be exploring an online unit of work related to ‘Being Safe Online’. Students will explore


What is Budd:e?

Budd:e (Primary) has been developed for Australian primary schools, for Years 3 and above.   Budd:e is education about the risks people take by going online, and the possible consequences of those risks.  It’s also education about the technical and behavioural measures we can all use, to help reduce our risk, and bolster online security — security for people, for internet devices, and for personal data.

Budd:e (Primary) contains eight online learning activities, plus one offline activity.  Students are required to make decisions, and may experiment with choices and consequences.  Progress through each activity is guided by prompts and feedback.

Budd:e is  an interactive tool that allows children to build and customise a ‘budd:e’ to personify good cybersecurity practice and online conduct.  Each Budd:e part is tied to a learning activity, so to build a ‘budd:e’ children must work through every learning activity to successful completion.

Students will receive a permission form to be completed by parents/guardians to enable them to create an account to enable their ‘Budd:e’ character to be saved and added to each session.
