Educators are cyber marvellous

Teachers are role models not just in the classroom but also in the school community. They equip students with knowledge and skills to help them navigate the digital world safely. 

The more digitally mature you are, the more influence you will have. Cybermarvel is here to support you.

Be Cyber Marvellous Challenge 2021

Students can submit an entry individually or as a group into the Be Cyber Marvellous 2021 Challenge. Read more about this exciting competition.

Learning from home

Teachers can download weekly lessons to provide online safety learning for years K-6. These are short focused activities that students can complete each day using materials available at home. Some online activities are also included. 

Remind your students to complete their journals so that they can prepare their entry for the Be Cyber Marvellous 2021 Challenge.

Classroom resources

The stage-based classroom resources set out below reflect the four effective practices of Element 1 of the eSafety Commissioner’s Best Practice Framework, including the need to:

  • Focus on students in the context of their relationships with, and responsibilities to, others
  • Uphold children’s rights to provision, participation and protection in digital environments
  • Acknowledge the significant opportunities and safety challenges that students face in online environments
  • Empower all students to participate meaningfully in the design, development, and implementation of their online safety education.
