Access to eSmart programs—keeping students safe online
Queensland Anti-Cyberbullying Taskforce Report highlighted the negative impact that cyberbullying can have on the mental health of young people. It's important for students, teachers, parents and the broader community to work together to teach online safety and support students to respond to cyberbullying if it occurs.
In response to the report, the Queensland Government has partnered with Dolly’s Dream and the Alannah and Madeline Foundation to provide a number of Queensland schools with access to eSmart programs.
Expressions of interest are now open for schools seeking to offer Alannah & Madeline Foundation eSmart Digital Licences to their students in 2022.
eSmart Digital Licences aim to teach students about positive online behaviours and how to respond to negative online situations. Digital Licences are designed for students from Prep to Year 9.
More information about the Digital Licences is available on the Alannah and Madeline Foundation website.
Schools are invited to apply for the Alannah and Madeline Foundation's eSmart Digital Licence cybersafety program by 17 September 2021.
