About us.

OUR WHOLE COMMUNITY APPROACH

OUR MISSION

Creating cyber safe communities!

The Cyber Safety Project’s mission is to provide a whole community approach focused on developing future skills, lifelong habits and self-regulation when innovating and using digital technologies for work, life and play. To create safer communities our educational programs and proactive teaching strategies will engage the whole community with learning how to participate safety and responsibly ​in a digitally-engaged world.

EMPOWER YOUNG PEOPLE

to self-manage their own privacy and security and to be responsible digital citizens when using connected technologies.

EQUIP EDUCATORS

with the tools and resources to develop proactive strategies through working with students, parents and the wider community.

ENGAGE PARENTS

and the wider community to assist in fostering positive and safe digital environments in the home.

KEEPING CHILDREN SAFE ONLINE

It takes a village to raise a child!
 
​To ensure that we support and empower ALL Australian students to be safe and responsible users of digital technologies both at home and school, we must arm ALL teachers, parents and the wider community with digital literacy skills and resources.

The Cyber Safety Project partners with school communities to ensure all school leaders, teachers and parents are kept ​up-to-date with the latest trending digital topics. We must provide space and time to learn and understand the way students can connect and interact through digital platforms, devices, sites, apps and gaming networks.
 
 

SCHOOL BASED PROGRAMS

Our school based programs aim to provide opportunities for teachers to stay up-to-date with the latest information as well as provide resources and curriculum linked to the National Curriculum. The core outcomes of our program include:

  • ​Teachers know relevant digital citizenship elements of the digital technologies curriculum, ethical and social responsibilities
  • Teachers are aware of and understand current digital literacies and trends impacting on young people in their care
  • Teachers are able to design learning to achieve the cyber/digital technologies outcomes for students
