Webinars for schools
eSafety's expert trainers deliver live online safety lessons to schools via Virtual Classroom webinars.
We work with the three education sectors to deliver webinars nationally including to regional and remote areas. Different topics are run throughout the year, covering a range of current online safety issues. The advice is informed by the latest research and intelligence from our investigation teams and eSafety's Best Practice Framework for Online Safety Education.
Our Virtual Classroom webinars are live video sessions where a trainer talks through a slide deck presentation and facilitates student interaction using moderated chats and polls. Students usually participate in their school classroom using a smartboard, guided by their teacher.
The webinars run for about 40 minutes and include resources and links to further information and support.
We work with the host education department or sector to deliver Virtual Classroom webinars on their preferred video conferencing platform. We have experience with a variety of platforms including GoToWebinar, Microsoft Teams and Zoom. Connection details will be provided to the teacher upon registration.
To provide the best possible audience experience, we recommend that before participating in a webinar, teachers liaise with their technical team to test the local internet connection and equipment.
Our school webinars are designed to be used with one connection per classroom. Using the same connection for more than one classroom may impact on student engagement and interactivity. Individual student connections will not be accepted.
