Digital citizen

The term “digital citizenship” is (sometimes) a part of this move. It moves away from a focus on risk and protection and replaces it with a focus on what is required to be a productive member of and contributor to the digital society. This includes some recognition of what it takes to be safe, but the ultimate focus is on making a contribution.

The Australian Government’s Stay Smart Online Site offers more information on the safe use of digital technologies.

Budd:e is a “Cyber security education package” provided by the Australian government. Amongst its many resources are videos outlining what students are doing online and what can happen to them online. There are options for primary and secondary students. Budd:e is education about the technical and behavioural measures we can use to help reduce risk and bolster cybersecurity, personal safety for the online world and security for our internet-enabled devices. Take a look at the website for more information and video presentations describing range of things regarding secondary students.
