The Cyber Savvy Workshop is suitable for primary (years 3 to 6) and secondary (year 7 to 12) students and we adapt the content to suit the age of the student audience.

The usage of computers, mobile devices and other technology is a significant influence on our life and has many positive and negative elements to it including cyber-bullying, lack of social bonding, isolation and a sedentary lifestyle. The seminar demonstrates these elements and encourages students to be aware of this influence and be able to use technology that enables them to be cyber-safe, to be responsible and have a healthy participation in the online as well as offline world.


Key concepts covered in the session:
  • Cyber-bullying – what it is & strategies that help us be cyber-safe
  • How technology is a wonderful tool but needs to be used wisely
  • Exploring positive and negative effects of technology including how it effects our physical and mental health
  • How technology can be addictive
  • Highlights the impact of leaving a permanent digital footprint online
  • Responsibilities associated with the use of devices and using social networks
  • Development of communication through history
  • Social media – this can be a useful tool but shouldn’t replace real friendships
  • The media can be a big influence, is commercially driven and is not always real
  • Key factors that form our self-image including the media, peers and what we see online
  • The promotion of empathy, values and building community

The incursion is engaging and interactive and includes multi-media, activities, games, discussion and information to equip, educate and impact the students. To see more including some of our other topics, you can go to our website at: http://www.valuesforlife.net
