Digital Citizenship 

The Digital Citizenship website will provide advice and guidance to students and parents on how to ensure the wellbeing of young people in a digital environment. It also supports teachers to model best practice and actively teach students the skills they need to be responsible digital citizens.

Focusing on a positively framed strategy, the site aims to equip and empower users to minimise the risks and maximise the opportunities in our digital future.

The toolkit is aligned to the curriculum and teachers can share it with their students, guiding them through important concepts such as:

  • managing privacy settings in social media
  • collaborating online
  • avoiding scams and hoaxes
  • understanding the law when it comes to online speech
  • internet banking, shopping online and much more.


Esafety Online

The esafety.gov.au website is a comprehensive, dynamic and interactive online safety hub for Australians. There really is no other place online quite like it! 

Almost a third of the website features exciting new material, including a section for young people, guided by young people, and key online safety issues you’re concerned about.


ThinkUKnow

ThinkUKnow is a partnership between the Australian Federal Police (AFP), Microsoft Australia, Datacom and the Commonwealth Bank, and is delivered in collaboration with the New South Wales Police Force as well as Neighbourhood Watch Australia. It is Australia’s first nationally delivered crime prevention program. 

The program bridges the knowledge gap between adults and young people so that everyone has an understanding of the roles they play and what they can do if something goes wrong online.
