Introduction to the Program
Smart, Safe and Responsible.
Redlands College seeks to promote a safe digital online environment and encourage each member of our college community: students, parents, staff, volunteers and guests in their smart, safe and responsible use of digital technologies – being eSmart.
Redlands College is pleased to announce that we have been recognised as an eSmart School.
The eSmart Schools program helps teachers, students and the whole community embrace the benefits of Digital Technologies and reduce our exposure to cyberspace risks such as cyberbullying, identity theft and accessing or sending inappropriate images and content. eSmart Schools is an initiative of The Alannah and Madeline Foundation, a national charity committed to protecting children from violence.
We view The Alannah and Madeline Foundations eSmarts Schools Program as a way to review our current practices then broaden and improve the effectiveness of our cybersafety/digital citizenship programme. Tackling cybersafety and cyberbullying requires a whole of community approach.
As part of our eSafety program and through the consultation and support of the Redlands College eSafety Committee, this eSafety@Redlands website has been created.
The eSafety@Redlands website contains:
- eSafety resources (Redlands College eSafety Policies, Digital Citizenship, Online Behaviour, Cyberbullying, Parental Concerns, Posting a Video or Image Online & College Policies)
- eSafety links to important websites
- eSafety@redlands blog
The selection of Redlands College as an eSmart School highlights our success so far, in promoting a safe digital online environment that encourages each member of our college community: students, parents, staff, volunteers and guests in their smart, safe and responsible use of digital technologies.
Through education and shared responsibility, we can continue to create an eSmart culture that promotes and values the online safety, privacy and wellbeing of each member of our community and beyond.
