2016 Safer Internet Day activities

Cybersmart Detectives

Our revamped Cybersmart Detectives module is an ideal Safer Internet Day activity for students in bands 3 and 4. The teacher-led module takes students through a real world example, exploring what may happen if someone reveals too much information online and it ends up in the wrong hands.

The multimedia program reinforces personal safety messages and protective measures for dealing with strangers online.

Safer Internet Day 2016 Virtual classrooms

Thanks to all of the schools who participated in this special presentation to share the hype and excitement surrounding Cherrybrooke Primary School’s inaugural X-Factor competition!

Along the journey, students learnt to:

  • understand the possible consequences of posting images
  • be a good bystander
  • communicate online respectfully
  • understand how to report inappropriate material and contact.

The start of the new school year for many students means new uniforms, books, classes and teachers. It's often accompanied by new devices: smartphones, tablets, laptops and gaming consoles.

While these devices can be great tools for socialising, it's important to encourage students to reflect on the way they use digital technologies in their lives.

Cyberbullying, sexting, filmed fights and police action ensue—will these friends avoid being tagged forever?
