Cybersafety is defined by the Department of Education and Training as the way in which people behave safely and responsibly to keep themselves and their friends safe online. At Karoo Primary School, we embrace Digital Technologies(DT) as vital tools that students will continue to use in the classroom, and at home to further their learning. With new technology comes a new level of responsibility for students, teachers, and parents. There is information, handy tips, hints and a list of activities and games suitable for any age, as well as information for parents on cybersafety, cyberbullying, and Government initiatives related to DT in schools via the cybersmart website.
Any students, parents, or teachers who feel they need help or guidance with any issues related to the use of Digital Technologies in schools should follow the link below.
This year, Karoo began the journey of becoming an eSmart accredited school in line with the Government’s “Stamp Out Bullying” plan. The eSmart framework uses a whole school approach to make cyber safety a normal part of every young person’s life. This is an initiative of the Alannah and Madeline Foundation.
