Read about the fantastic initiatives in cyber safety by leading organisations that work to help keep you and your kids protected online.
PROJECT ROCKIT is Australia's youth-driven anti-bullying organisation that empowers young people to stand up and lead change – in school, online and beyond. Telstra shares PROJECT ROCKIT’s philosophy that young people can step up against cyberbullying if given the right tools and resources and we support PROJECT ROCKIT national anti-cyberbullying campaign. PROJECT ROCKIT created the unique and powerful program in partnership with Telstra which combines in-school workshops with a digital classroom. Our support of PROJECT ROCKIT is part of Telstra Foundation’s Digital Futures program, which aims to build digital citizenship and technology skills in young Australians.
The Telstra Foundation has partnered with The Alannah and Madeline Foundation to offer eSmart Libraries to Australia's 1500 public libraries. This cyber safety program has been designed to better equip local libraries with the skills needed for a smart, safe and responsible online community. This partnership is giving more Australians the opportunity to benefit from new communications technologies while making the online library experience safer for everyone.
In a world that is increasingly connected, ensuring children have the digital know-how to remain safe online is crucial. The eSmart Digital Licence is an online education program that teaches school age children how to play, learn and socialise safely in the digital world. Delivered via a fun, interactive quiz, the eSmart Digital Licence addresses social media, online reputation and communication using real life scenarios so that parents and children are equipped to be smart, safe and responsible online.
Telstra Foundation is a member of the Family Online Safety Institute (FOSI) Board. FOSI is an international, non-profit organisation working to make the online world safer for kids and their families. FOSI convenes leaders in industry, government and the non-profit sectors to collaborate and create new solutions and policies in the field of online safety. Through research, resources, events and special projects, FOSI promotes a culture of responsibility and encourages a sense of digital citizenship for all.
