Cyber Safety Resources​

The Department of Education believes children should learn in a safe, supportive and respectful school community. This includes participating safely in technology-based learning and using technology responsibly.

Making sure your child is safe online is a shared responsibility between the community, parents, schools and students.

Social Media Resources

The use of social media is increasingly a part of everyday online activities, particularly through mobile devices. Social media services such as wikis and blogs allow people to easily publish, share and discuss content with local, national and global audiences.

Learning and communication can be enhanced through the effective use of social media. Individuals and institutions can develop personal and professional online identities and learning networks to listen to and participate in relevant conversations.
