Dimitri's Story

Story fourteen – Dimitri, Teacher

"The internet has changed our lives forever. It has revolutionized communications to the extent that it is now our preferred means of communication. It seems like in almost everything we do we use the internet.

Technology is changing the classroom and teaching methods. Being an educator, we have to keep up with all the changes in order for the new generation of children to be better equipped for the future. There will be even more changes in the future.
Our school has embraced technology but at the same time we have taken all the necessary measures to educate our children in how to act in a smart, safe and accountable way when interacting on-line.

eSmart from the Alannah & Madeline Foundation, has given my school the needed tools to improve our cyber safety and reduce cyber bullying at our school. I feel like we are prepared to deal with any challenges they may arise in the future."
