John and Brooke discussed simple strategies that students could use to help keep themselves, friends and family members cyber safe.
They shared the “CYBER” acronym relating to online safety;
C – Communicate; tell a trusted adult when something is not right
Y – You; it is your Cyber world, do not let it control you
B – Balance; have balance in your life: sleep, exercise, good nutrition, other hobbies
E – Education; keep your Cyber knowledge up to date, see link below
R – Respect; if you do not respect others online, you are really not respecting yourself
R – Reputation; your online activity can become what people think of you
R – Resume; your online activity leaves a digital footprint that can be seen by anyone
The esafety commission has some amazing information for every age group (adults included), we encourage everyone to have a look with their young person.
