As a nation, we should all be working to ensure we invest time and resources into raising a generation of smart, safe and responsible children and young people who are capable and compassionate – both online and offline.
The Alannah & Madeline Foundation is instrumental in supporting communities – schools in particular – to achieve this, and with more students online than ever before, there has never been a more critical time than now.
eSmart is a framework that empowers schools and other communities to ensure they are developing smart, engaged and critical-thinking people equipped with eSmart know-how and behaviours.
It is also key in reducing the risks and improving protective factors for violence against children at an individual relationship, community and social level and helps create positive and inclusive cultures that reduces bullying and cyber bullying, as well as increasing online safety.
Our virtual Connect workshops are delivered by the Foundation’s expert teacher-trained facilitators, covering topics such as respectful relationships, parenting in the digital world and online safety.
These online workshops are the perfect way to connect teachers, parents and/or students with the latest in online safety tools and information.

It also prepares young people for the best and the worst of the internet.
