  • Children are growing up in a world very different to the world we grew up in.
    Challenges for parents to manage in relation to technology and how it impacts on our kids
    We have great students at our school who by and large use their laptops appropriately but we always need to be vigilant and prepare students for challenges they may face.
  • Part of the challenge of protecting our children is knowing what they are doing online and being open about this.

  • Connecting with friends through social media has become an important part of developing relationships for a lot of young people. Feeling disconnected from friends if not apart of these networks as lots of things happen here and they do not want to miss out.
  • Our students are accessing social media inline with usage in wider community. Likely to be doing a combination of both activities in regards to times mentioned above.
  • Ichat on laptops - school uses ichat as a way to transfer files in class. Safer social networking option to some other sites. Harder to find people out of your friendship circle. Not allowed at school without teacher permission. Parents can request it be removed

  • key areas of concern for young people - posting and accessing inappropriate photos, posting and seeing inappropriate comments, ‘making friends’ - requesting friends - must accept a friend request.

  • A new dimension to bullying that can have far reaching consequences. A new form of bullying.





  • Filters - can be bypassed but a good precaution and safety net.
