Connectivity has become an integral part of everyday life and learning. As students communicate, collaborate, create and learn with online and digital tools, the need to educate students about responsible online behaviours has become more important than ever.

Launched on 15 June, Cyberwise is a learning and teaching resource for students, teachers and parents to encourage cybersafety in schools. Available through Catholic Education’s Classm8 site, the Cyberwise webpage provides a range of resources, policies, teaching strategies and tips to support young people in becoming discerning and responsible users of technology and social media.

Designed in collaboration with teachers and students, Cyberwise is underpinned by Catholic values and key behaviours to be safe, be respectful and be responsible. The focus on these three areas encourages students to be mindful of their online activity in a way that puts relationships, human dignity and personal reputations at the forefront.

Students from St Mark’s Catholic College, Stanhope Gardens took an active role in contributing to the Cyberwise campaign by producing a video that would provide a student view of cybersafety issues and a starting point for discussion within the classroom.

Year 10 St Mark’s student Jacob Aouchan said the Cyberwise video was extremely relevant for students.

‘It is really important that young people have a greater awareness of the dangers and risks associated with social media and are encouraged to be proactive and seek help when needed,’ Jacob said.
