Transcript of Raising eSmart Kids

We are becoming an eSmart School

Hector’s World® is a unique cybersafety initiative for teachers and parents to help young people learn about safe online practices. The core content of Hectors World is the 7 animated episodes featuring Hector the dolphin and his friends. Each episode has support material for teachers and parents.

We use the Hectors World series to teach cyber safety from Grade 3/4 and continue to focus a large part of our ICT curriculum on learning to be eSmart in Grade 5/6.

a Katandra School Presentation
1. Keep your computer in a shared location in your home. Be involved in what your child is doing online.

2. Talk privacy and security. Discuss what information is okay to share online.

3. Set safe search and security controls. Use parental filters and limit the content your children can search for. Turn off bluetooth and geo-locators.

4. Consider a 'lights out / wifi off' policy. Agree as a family to turn off Wifi at a certain time and put all devices in one central charging location. Most bullying happens late at night. If parents also stop using technology at a certain time it sets a good example.

5. Help your child to understand that there is a cost involved with internet download limits and mobile phone plans.
