eSmart

​Helping schools promote cybersafety and prevent cyberbullying

eSmart is an initiative of the Alannah and Madeline Foundation that aims to create a culture of smart, safe, and responsible use of technology.

eSmart recognises the important role schools play in preparing students to confidently navigate a digital world, and supports the implementation of evidence-based policies and practices to promote cyber safety and assist in the prevention of cyber bullying.

New opportunities are available to Victorian schools to have free access to the eSmart suite of programs.

Programs

eSmart Schools

The eSmart Schools framework helps school communities prepare for and respond to cyber risks and cyber bullying issues so students feel safe and well supported at school.

After implementing any changes in operational practices to achieve eSmart status, schools become eSmart Members, which provides them with additional expert support and resources to continue reviewing and improving their cyber safety policies and processes.

Schools are supported by a team of eSmart Advisors, professional development opportunities and community webinars as they review their school operations, using best-practice guidance within the framework.

The eSmart Digital Licence is an online cyber safety program that teaches primary and secondary aged students critical digital skills to be smart, safe and responsible online. 

The program incorporates eight modules that address privacy, searching, sharing, gaming, social networking, risky behaviours and cyber bullying.
