Students are spending increasing amounts of time online and using technology more than ever before. It is important for students to know how to stay safe online. Parents and school staff can support students to keep themselves and others safe online.
High quality resources are available to support teachers, parents and students to be cybersafe.
Virtual Classroom for the National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence
The Office of the eSafety Commissioner is delivering online virtual classrooms for students and staff for the National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence on Friday 16 March 2018.
The ‘Imagine a future free from cyber bullying’ 40 minute presentation will be hosted for Years 4, 5 and 6 students on Friday 16 March 2018 between 11.00am and 11.40am AEDT.
The presentation will ask students to imagine a school, in the near future, where students use technology without fear of bullying and harassment – a place where students feel empowered to solve online spaces for all. At the end of the session, students will be asked to come up with their own big ideas for a world free from cyberbullying.
The 40 minute presentation will assist students to:
- identify how the actions of bystanders, friends and family can prevent and/or stop online bullying and harassment
- propose strategies for managing the changing nature of relationships including dealing with cyber bullying and building online friendships
- propose ways to share information about local services young people can access for help with cyber-bullying issues.
