OUR WHOLE COMMUNITY APPROACH
with the tools and resources
to develop proactive
strategies through working
with students, parents and
the wider community.
Keeping children safe online
It takes a village to raise a child!
To ensure that we support and empower ALL Australian students to be safe and responsible users of digital technologies both at home and school, we must arm
ALL teachers, parents and the wider community with
digital literacy skills and resources.
The Cyber Safety Project partners with school communities
to ensure all school leaders, teachers and parents are kept
up-to-date with the latest trending digital topics. We must provide space and time to learn and understand the way students can connect and interact through digital platforms, devices, sites, apps and gaming networks.
School Based Programs
Our school based programs aim to provide opportunities for teachers to stay up-to-date with the latest information as well as provide resources and curriculum linked to the National Curriculum. The core outcomes of our program include:

Sam's background as a primary school teacher and advocate
for student leadership lead him towards becoming a Co-Founder of the Cyber Safety Project. In 2017 Sam was the deserving recipient of the Deakin Community Award for his outstanding contributions to his local community (Deakin Electorate in Melbourne).
Sam is a self confessed millennial with accounts on all of the
social networking platforms. He has seen first hand in his own teaching experience that even small mistakes made online
can have long lasting social and emotional consequences.
His motivation for developing and delivering the Cyber Safety
Project is to reach a broader audience of teachers, students and community members, as well as provide effective learning experiences and teaching resources. To ensure students 'grow up digital' Sam's vision is to see the community learn important
safe and responsible online habits.
