CyberSafety Information

Safely navigating our way through the vast amount of online content can seem overwhelming, especially when it comes to children wanting access to the latest Apps or games. The Office of the Children’s eSafety Commissioner has many great resources to educate parents and children about staying safe online. This week we have attached ‘The Parent’s Guide to Online Safety’ for your perusal (in both the English and Simplifed Chinese editions). Please take the time to visit The Office of the Children’s eSafety Commissioner for more information. https://www.esafety.gov.au/

What is eSmart?

eSmart is an initiative of The Alannah and Madeline Foundation, a national charity committed to protecting children from violence. Cyberbullying, sexual predation, identity theft and accessing and sending inappropriate images and content are some of the real cybersafety risks facing young people today.

“An eSmart school is a school where the smart, safe and responsible use of information and communications technology is a cultural norm. Students, teachers and the wider school community are equipped to embrace the best these technologies can offer, while being savvy about the pitfalls

In eSmart schools, relationships are strong and supportive and learning outcomes are enhanced. Bullying and cyberbullying are therefore less likely to thrive.

An eSmart school is a school where the smart, safe and responsible use of information and communications technology is a cultural norm. Students, teachers and the wider school community are equipped to embrace the best these technologies can offer, while being savvy about the pitfalls.

Students are regularly involved in developing and delivering information on the smart, safe and responsible use of technologies to a variety of audiences and are taught a suite of social and emotional skills.

What does eSmart mean?

eSmart assists teachers, students and the whole school community embrace the benefits of technology and reduce exposure to cyberspace risks such as cyberbullying, identity theft, online sexual predation and accessing or sending inappropriate images and content.

As a school, we integrate cybersafety into our wellbeing policies, establishing clear procedures to deal with incidents, and delivering curriculum around the smart, safe and responsible use of technology.

eSmart Week

Mont Albert Primary School is participating in National eSmart Week from 4-8th September to show our commitment to building a cyber safe community.

Year 1 students watched some episodes of Hector's World.

They then completed an activity where they sorted online situations into safe and unsafe.

 

 

 

Year 3 students watched a YouTube clip which showed positive and negative online behaviour. They then completed the ‘Digital License’ quiz. Students then worked in groups to create a poster that prompted one aspect of being safe online. They then presented to the class.
