Digital Citizenship

I'm pretty excited to about presenting our school's updated Anti-bullying Policy to staff on our first day back for 2012.

Digital citizenship will play a big part in reducing the incidence of cyberbullying, and the NSW Government has developed this website including games and information to help students learn about cyber safety.

The NSW Government also provided a list of links - I have typed them up with the full web addresses.
Links by Stage

Websites like Bullying. No Way! have some fantastic resources, information for parents and classroom ideas. Thinkuknow has been developed by the Australian Federal Police and is an excellent resource, especially for parents and those who are not so up to date with the world of technology. They also have a website dedicated to young people, aged 11-17 years old.

Support can be found at Youth Beyond Blue and Reach Out Australia.
