About the Cybermarvel program
The Cybermarvel program aims to build online safety awareness in primary school students, staff and families. It is a collaborative initiative of the NSW, QLD, TAS, VIC, SA and NT education departments and will:
actively build staff and students’ cyber safety awareness and skills
inform parents and carers on how to keep their families safe online.
encourage safe online behaviour and experiences
We have worked with the eSafety Commissioner, Grok Academy, Microsoft, Apple, Google, Phriendly Phishing, Palo Alto Networks and Ollie Online to collate a range of resources for teachers, students and parents.
Understanding students’ rights and responsibilities in the digital age is vital for young people and is the theme for the Cybermarvel program. The program will help school communities to have fun, engaging and safe discussions and help nurture good digital citizens.
Principals and leaders are role models in their school community. Use the webinars and resources to inform yourself and improve your knowledge and skills. Your efforts can help nurture digitally safe citizens.
Educators use technology to communicate and work with students and colleagues. While this has advantages it also comes with risks and responsibilities. Be digitally mature and support your students with their online safety education.
Being online allows your family to learn, socialise and have fun. But it can be challenging to ensure you are all safe. Learn how to improve your digital maturity, identify scams and protect your family when online.
Calling all 5 - 7 year olds! Want to learn and have fun at the same time? Watch our Cyber play time videos and make a mask or answer questions and write some crazy passwords that only you know. Be cyber marvellous!
