Computing at Schools, Cyber Division specialise in aiding Primary and Post-Primary schools to educate their Students, Teachers, and Parents how to stay safe online, ensuring a culture of awareness and well-being. Our specialised Cyber Division ensures all our audiences are fully aware of the dangers that are present on the Internet. We specialise in the creation of up to date Acceptable Use Policies (AUP’s) which are a requirement for all schools. See our comprehensive packages and competitive prices below.
Principals and teachers have a duty of care to take reasonable steps to protect students from any harm that should have reasonably been foreseen, including those that may be encountered within the online learning environment.
Teachers can potentially be exposed to huge amounts of cyber risk which can, therefore, impact on the school’s reputation, harm their careers and have adverse effects on their students. This workshop was developed to educate Teacher about modern practises ensuring their online safety.
While advances in technology have created opportunities to engage students in the classroom in new and exciting ways they also present significant challenges.
It is essential that principals work in partnership with their staff and school community to: develop holistic policies that reflect the teaching and learning practices, strategies and technologies that are being used by teachers and students create clear processes and practices to manage classroom and online behaviour and respond to any incidents that may arise prepare curriculum plans that explicitly teach safe, responsible and ethical online behaviours implement and raise awareness of the school’s policies, processes and plans.
