Health: Keeping safe online

The ongoing changes in technology and the way it is used means all staff, students, and the wider community need to know how to model responsible behaviours as successful digital citizens in real-world contexts. The following resources provide information for teachers and students to help students keep safe online.

Sean Lyons, Chief Technology Officer from NetSafe, explains the Learn Guide Protect (LGP) website. LGP is intended to support schools in developing a culture of digital citizenship by providing information and resources for teachers and students in their learning around what it is to be a digital citizen. Sean explains the three layers making up the website and their specific purposes.

Digital citizenship and cybersafety
In this clip, Sean discusses NetSafe's definition of digital citizenship and how it fits into the national curriculum. He explains, "the focus of cybersafety has expanded beyond policies and procedures to include discussion, action, and teachable moments in the classroom." Students need to build skills and knowledge to effectively manage cyber challenges themselves, and become confident and successful digital citizens.

The NetSafe Kit for Schools
This kit sets out a comprehensive programme of cybersafety for schools based upon infrastructure of policies, procedures and use agreements, an effective electronic security system, and a comprehensive cybersafety education programme.
