eSmart, an initiative of the Alannah & Madeline Foundation, uses a cultural change approach to improve cyber safety and reduce cyber bullying.
As part of eSmart we currently run three programs - eSmart Schools, eSmart Libraries and the eSmart Digital Licence.
eSmart Schools and eSmart Libraries provides a prevention and risk management framework to schools and libraries across the country, helping them better integrate cyber safety practices and promote the safe use of online technology in their community.
The eSmart Digital Licence complements the eSmart Schools Framework and can also be used at home to help parents teach their children about cyber safety. The Digital Licence is an online challenge which uses quizzes, videos and games to teach school age children how to play, learn and socialise online in a smart, safe and responsible way.
Over the past two decades, our lives have been transformed by a digital revolution, opening up a world of possibilities.
Children are the greatest beneficiaries of the digital era and are learning to navigate the online world at a younger and younger age. We need to ensure our communities are equipped to teach children, and the whole community, how to benefit from online technology whilst being savvy and prepared for the pitfalls - cyber bullying, scams, fraud, exposure to predators and inappropriate content.
Through our programs our aim is to create an eSmart Australia, where everyone knows how to be smart, safe and responsible online and passes this information onto our children.
