‘Cybersmart Detectives teaches children cybersafety messages in a safe environment. Online and interactive, it makes for a powerful and dynamic learning experience,’ said Chris Chapman, ACMA Chairman.

“Cybersafety education is vital in ensuring children enjoy safe internet experiences, and know how to protect themselves from risks. ACMA’s Cybersmart Detectives program is a key part of ACMA’s cybersafety program, which provides education resources, advice and support for young people, teachers and families,” he said.

The launch will be followed by a Cybersmart Detectives activity involving students from Coburg North Primary School and eight other schools throughout the state. During the activity, children work in real time and liaise with community professionals to solve an internet-themed problem. Each plays the role of a school Deputy Principal concerned about the welfare of a new student, who may be being bullied by someone they have met in an internet chat room.

The key messages of Cybersmart Detectives for children are:

    * Don’t give out personal information when chatting online
    * If you want to meet face-to-face someone you’ve chatted with, take a parent with you
    * Be aware that in the online environment, people may not be who they say they are.
