Australia will be kicking off an international live internet radio broadcast on tomorrow’s Safer Internet Day, with the ACMA’s Cybersmart program holding its first ever online radio program.
‘Connect with respect’ is the key message of the program which airs tomorrow between 5 pm and 8 pm, before handing over to the UK to pick up the broadcast. The program will feature Australian children and teenagers, parents and teachers, plus local and international technology and cybersafety experts. The broadcast will be available to stream live from www.cybersmart.gov.au .
Representatives from organisations including Consultative Working Group on Cybersafety members, Childnet International, the Family Online Safety Institute, Google, Facebook, Disney, eBay, Telstra, Paypal, Kids Helpline, state police departments and many more are also taking part in the ACMA’s activities on the day.
More than 1500 children in schools across Australia will participate in Cybersmart Challenge activities, which empower students to make informed decisions about cybersafety issues through a real time, interactive, online education platform.
Over 17,500 students across the country will also be participating in an online Internet Safety Awareness Presentation conducted by Cybersmart Outreach trainers through State Education department online portals. Videos, lesson plans and activities will be available to teachers to use on the day with their students.
