We thank Amanda Dawson for running the Cybersafety sessions (one for staff and one for parents) on 30 June. The feedback has been very positive. The 40 parents who attended the evening session had many questions and left with a better understanding of how to be proactive so that our students may be supported in developing good judgement, safe practices and ethical behaviour. Thanks you to our Parent Network volunteers for organising the lovely nibbles.
Students in Year 5-7 will attend a class session with Amanda in week 1 of next term.
Our headset at school is about growing our capacity as a learning community so that we may be better able to wisely support our young learners. We want students to be confident, ethical, smart users of digital technology. We see that the development of parents’ and teachers’ knowledge of what to look out for and how to monitor and support good practice in our young learners is vital. This means we must all be learners.
We know that there are many who would love more information, who were unable to attend last Tuesday evening. To this end we would like to collect some Cybersafety resources that people may explore to learn more. Anyone like to create an engaging blog page on this topic? Don’t be shy… please let us know.
Here are a couple of links that we recommended in a previous post:
An excellent resource to get you thinking is the Cybersmart website: Cybersmart resources for parents
Another terrific site is : http://www.thinkuknow.org.au/youth/
Let us know of any other resources you wish to recommend.
