Years 5 and 6 eSmart Digital License Programme

In lieu of the annual Digital Citizenship and Parenting in the Digital World information session for Year 5 families, all boys in Years 5 and 6 will undertake the eSmart Digital License. The launch next week coincides with Safer Internet Week and will form one of the many activities undertaken by each grade as we strive to equip all students to become digitally fluent 21st century citizens through authentic, unique and engaging learning experiences.

Being at the forefront of keeping kids safe online, the Alannah & Madeline Foundation has developed the eSmart Digital Licence education program with support from Google.  The eSmart Digital Licence is an online safety education program that teaches students how to play, learn and socialise safely in the digital world. Consisting of eight modules, when all topics are completed the user receives an eSmart Digital Licence in recognition of being equipped with the skills to help them explore the online world safely.

Beginning on Monday, boys in Years 5 and 6 will receive their login details in their Record Books. In conjunction with class teachers, the eight modules will be completed over the course of the term.  Modules will be set each week for homework and we strongly encourage parents to get involved and create an opportunity for important conversations on digital safety.

Happy Safer Internet Week!
