Level 4 Digital Licence

Dear Parents,

 

The rapid advances in technology have meant rapid changes to the way our children live their lives, and subsequently to the way we parent and educate.

 

According to research, one in five young Australians are the target of cyberbullying each year, and 49 per cent of teenagers reported they had added people to their social networking ‘friends’ list that they had never met face-to-face.

 

With that in mind, and with support from Google, the Alannah and Madeline Foundation has developed a ‘Digital Licence’ – an online education tool designed to help protect children from online risks. This engaging resource was designed with cyber safety experts, teachers, and industry leaders in education and technology.

 

The Digital Licence is the most comprehensive educational resource for online safety and responsibility.

 

Here at Kingston Heath Primary School we endeavour to embrace the benefits of technology, and at the same time educate and protect our children from cyberbullying and other online risks. Therefore, we are implementing the Digital Licence in Years 5 and 6 and invite you to visit the website digitallicence.com.au to learn more about the program.

 

Kind Regards,

Mr. Macdermid, Ms. Wheatley, Ms. Fox and Mr. Starling
