该 following link provides advice from the Department for Education for parents and carers about cyberbullying.
Whilst exciting and beneficial both in and out of the context of education, much ICT, particularly web-based resources, are not consistently policed. All users need to be aware of the range of risks associated with the use of these Internet technologies.
At St Benedict’s College we understand the responsibility to educate students on eSafety issues; teaching them the appropriate behaviours and critical thinking skills to enable them to remain both safe and legal when using the internet and related technologies, in and beyond the context of the classroom.
Going online to socialise with friends is a fantastic means of communication today. However, sharing too much information can be dangerous
1. When posting something online, consider who you are sharing it with. Ask yourself would you be comfortable showing it to a relative, person in authority or someone you respect. If not don’t do it.
2. Consider using the privacy and security settings on social media sites so only your friends and family see your pages.
4. Take care when choosing passwords and try to avoid using real names or even pets names for security purposes. Choose passwords only you know that cannot be traced.
5. Never post personal information such as addresses, email addresses or phone numbers publicly online. Do not give your real date of birth. One piece of information can lead to identity fraud
6. Be careful about the photos or videos you share online. Avoid photos of places you are associated with eg home or school. Once photos are shared they are no longer yours.
7. Only share conversations and messages directly with the person you want to communicate with otherwise millions will be sharing your conversation.
9. Never arrange to meet with someone you have met and talked to only online. Share the information with a trusted adult and if a meeting is arranged, take them along with you and meet in a public place.
10. Always tell your parent, carer or a trusted adult if someone or something makes you feel uncomfortable or worried, or if you or someone you know is being bullied. Remember the Think U Know website if further information is needed:
As parents you want your children to be as safe as possible when they are online. Although it is important to have regular discussions with your children about their online use, there are some ‘parental controls’ –a set of tools that can help you to ensure their safety.
To ensure that your child does not access upsetting, disturbing or offensive content, please refer to the CEOP's website Think U Know for 父母和看护人!
