National eSmart Week 2019

in News

National eSmart Week is a celebration where schools, public libraries, workplaces and community groups come together to promote the smart, safe and responsible use of digital technology.

In 2019, National eSmart Week will be held in line with National Child Protection Week from 1-7 September.

The theme is ‘Keeping Communities Safe Online’, helping create awareness, solutions and ideas for community education on issues of cyber safety, bullying and wellbeing.

Since the first National eSmart Week in 2015 organisations around Australia have showcased their commitment to cyber safety through events, activities, education and more.  

eSmart is an initiative of the Alannah & Madeline Foundation and currently in more than 2300 schools around Australia and 80 per cent of public libraries. It encompasses eSmart Schools, eSmart Libraries, the eSmart Digital Licence and Connect workshops.

eSmart uses a cultural change approach to improve cyber safety, increase digital literacy and reduce cyber bullying. eSmart is delivered to participants via a website portal in combination with face-to-face and online training sessions.

Register your school, library, community group or workplace for National eSmart Week to celebrate your commitment to cyber safety. You will receive an activity toolkit full of inspiration and ideas to get you started. Don’t forget to share on social media using #eSmartWeek and #CreativelyeSmart.

Together, we can build an Australia that is free from cyber bullying, with a population that embraces the best that technology can offer, while also being smart, safe and responsible online.
