ThinkUKnow what young people see, say and do online?
Technology plays an important role in how young people maintain their friendships and communicate with those closest to them.
Technology is no different to anything else a young person encounters. They will make mistakes, and we need to be able to support them through this and arm them with the right information, and empower them to make the right choices.
The internet is an amazing thing. It is almost the one stop shop for everything. It is a supermarket, it is a university, it is a doctor, it is an entertainment hub.
Ultrasound pics, baby pics, first day of school pics – Parents today have encouraged the use of technology and placed their child right in the middle of it all before they can even crawl in some instances.
Together with Microsoft, the Australian Federal Police (AFP) have developed advice on what children and young people SEE, SAY and DO online. It is an easy way to remember what your children may encounter online, and the potential challenges they may face.
There are 3 sessions being delivered by an AFP member – all aimed at different audiences. Yrs 7&8 students, Yrs 11&12 students and parents, educators and community.
Feel free to phone for further information: L/S/C Sarah REGGARDO or A/S/Sgt Mel McLENNAN at the Sale Police Station – 5142 2200
