Did you know 1 in 5 Australian school children have experienced cyberbullying?
While most children have a positive experience online, and the internet can be a fantastic resource for education and fun, unfortunately there are pitfalls and dangers.
Cybersafety education is an important lesson for young people, with data from the Office of the eSafety Commissioner showing that 38 per cent of young people (aged 8 – 17) used the internet to chat to someone they did not know and 33 per cent of young people (aged 8 -17) report unwanted content/contact online.
Educating students about cybersafety is vital to their health and wellbeing to ensure they are able to navigate technology safely and understand how to recognise, react and report behaviour that might make them feel unsafe.
The Life Ed program educates students about the positives and negatives of being online and understanding the difference between safe and unsafe situations.
A key part of this is also helping students understand their rights and responsibilities in terms of respectful and safe behaviour. The specific modules include bCyberwise and Relate Respect Connect.
