New Junior Primary Digital Licence keeps young children safe online

in News

The Alannah & Madeline Foundation is proud to release the latest version of the eSmart Digital Licence - eSmart Junior Primary Digital Licence.

Digital Licence is used by teachers, young people, children and families across the country.  The three programs for children and young people incorporate modules that address problematic issues, including relationships and reputation, location-based apps, technology addiction and digital footprints.With children now online before they can read and up to one in five young people reporting being cyber bullied, the eSmart Junior Primary Digital Licence is aimed at Prep to Year 2 students so they too can now learn how to be smart, safe and responsible online.

It’s one of the most comprehensive online cyber safety resources available, teaching school aged children critical digital skills and promoting discussion about online safety between young people and their parents, carers and teachers.

More than 2,500 schools across the country have registered to use Digital Licence, with more than 200,000 students having completed it.

A recently conducted independent evaluation of eSmart Digital Licence shows that it positively changes young people’s personal attitudes and behavior and improves cyber safety, increases digital literacy and reduces cyber bullying.
