Digital media and technology is evolving at a rapid pace, bringing with it amazing opportunities as well as real risks for our children. On the positive side, young people are using the Internet and mobile technologies to create, connect, explore and learn in ways never before imagined. Challenges from harmful behaviours, cyberbullying to digital dramas, are surfacing in schools and in homes.
The core message of the curriculum we are teaching on the website is one of safety. The curriculum centres on 8 main categories. This is a whole community approach to Digital Citizenship by providing parent and whanau resources to help you support your kid’s learning. As we teach these lessons in class, we will be sharing parent tip sheets, and videos to share and discuss at home.
