Developing digitally literate and cyber savvy kids!
To achieve this, the team at Cyber Safety Project have developed a National Cyber Safety Curriculum Program for Australian schools linked to current national and state curriculum frameworks. Our aim is to design and deliver engaging learning experiences for students, teachers and the wider community focused on developing future skills, lifelong habits and self-regulation when using digital technologies for work, life and play.
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 work 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 to and interact through digital platforms, devices, sites, apps and gaming networks.
School Based Programs
As teachers who work with other teachers there is an opportunity to further develop skills, capacity and knowledge of current online trends impacting on young people. 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:
