eSmart

 

Portland Secondary College -  Current eSmart Status

 

 

Cyberbullying, sexual predation, identity theft and accessing and sending inappropriate images and content are some of the real cybersafety risks facing young people today.

 

 

To reduce our students’ exposure to these risks, and to help the whole College community embrace the benefits of technology, Portland Secondary College has become involved in eSmart.

 

 

Funded in Victoria by the State Government, eSmart is an initiative  of The Alannah and Madeline Foundation. It was developed by the RMIT School of Education, with the input of many other cybersafety and education experts.

 

 

Portland Secondary College has successfully completed the first stage of accreditation and is now moving through the implementation stage of the initiative. This involves the further development of existing policies, establishing clear procedures to deal with incidents as they arise and delivering curriculum around the smart, safe and responsible use of technology.

 

 

Parent and student feedback and assistance in developing these new initiatives is more than welcome and any member of the College community who would like to become involved in the eSmart program should contact Ms Kindred, Assistant Principal, at the College.
