our pro-technology ethos
“To participate in a knowledge-based economy and to be empowered within a technologically sophisticated society now and into the future, students need the knowledge, skills and confidence to make ICT work for them at school, at home, at work and in their communities.”
- Australia Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority
Technology plays a fundamental role in the social, academic and creative development of the contemporary student. With the growing use of digital technologies and centrality of ICT in the Australian Curriculum, students are spending more time than ever before immersed in the online world.
It’s an exciting time for students and technology-use possibilities. However, cyber safety education is vital to help students develop social and ethical practices for navigating the online world safely and productively. With cyber threats being ever-present, including cyber bullying, sexting, online strangers, and excessive use, students of all ages need to be upskilled to ensure they have the ability and confidence to not only stay safe in the online world, but to thrive within it.
