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
avoiding scams and hoaxes
understanding the law when it comes to online speech
internet banking, shopping online and much more.
