Cybersmart Outreach Internet Safety Awareness Presentation
Young people today are immersed in digital technologies. They use the internet and mobile phones to socialise, study, exchange ideas and play. While online activity has many benefits, there are also risks.
To help your children stay online, Manly Vale Public School is hosting a Cybersmart Outreach - Internet Safety Awareness presentation. Designed for parents, teachers and students, this presentation is provided by the Australian Communications and Media Authority (the ACMA) as part of a national program of cybersmart initiatives.
The Cybersmart Outreach - Internet Safety Awareness presentation is thorough and non-technical. It covers a range of issues including:
the ways children use the internet and emerging technologies
the potential risks for children online, such as cyberbullying, identity theft, inappropriate contact and exposure to inappropriate contact and exposure to inappropriate content
tips to help children stay online
The presentation is conducted by an ACMA Cybersmart trainer and is free of charge.
Manly Vale is committed to helping students develop appropriate behaviours when using digital technologies, both at school and home.
The Cybersmart Outreach - Internet Safety Awareness presentation will be held on:
Monday 19 September 2011 at 7:00pm in the school hall.
To register your attendance, please contact the school office as soon as possible. Enrolments will also be accepted on the night.
