Week 8 – Cybersafety

Learning about Cybersafety is important, as there are many eSafety issues that include:

  • Balancing online time
  • Cyberbullying
  • Online gaming
  • Photos, videos and social media
  • Protecting personal information
  • Sexting
  • Digital reputation
  • Offensive or illegal content
  • Social networking
  • Trolling
  • Unwanted contact

It’s great to read about these issues and learn about how they are prominent within our society. There are so many people who are unaware of the fact that whatever they put online stays there forever. It was also good to read through the Stay Smart Online website: the Australian Government’s online safety and security website, which is designed to help everyone understand the risks and simple steps that everyone can take to protect our personal and financial information online.

It’s great to see that there’s so much information out there about how to be safe online.
