Event description

Description

ThinkUKnow is a partnership between the Australian Federal Police (AFP), Microsoft Australia, Datacom and the Commonwealth Bank and is delivered in collaboration with Victoria Police.

The program aims to provide parents/carers with the tools to create a safer online environment for young people in their care. The presentations cover what young people SAY, SEE and DO online covering topics such as social media reputation management, cyberbullying, ‘sexting’, online grooming, online gaming, inappropriate content, privacy management, identity theft, how to protect your devices, and how to report matters when things go wrong.

The program bridges the knowledge gap between adults and young people so that everyone has an understanding of the roles they play and what they can do if something goes wrong online.

What young people SEE online

  • We talk about challenges such as online grooming, ‘sexting’, cyberbullying and inappropriate content.
  • What you can do to support young people through online challenges.
  • We also explain how to report if something goes wrong.

What young people SAY online

  • What you can do to help support young people understand what they say online can be permanent. We call this our ‘digital shadow’.
  • This includes talking about being respectful online, thinking before you post, knowing what information is okay to share online.

What young people DO online

  • How they use technology to have fun online, such as applications (or apps), websites and social networks.
  • How they can handle their digital shadow, including their privacy and relationships online.

Light refreshments provided. Please let us know if you have any food allergies or special dietary requirements.
