This was originally posted by Simon Evans 29 Oct 2012. This is cross-posted as part of the transition of Software for Learning to Enabling e-Learning.

Brett Lee was the closing keynote at Learning at Schools conference. He used to be an undercover police officer whose job it was to identify those who used the internet to commit offences against children.
Now he speaks to parents, teachers and students about the dangers of the internet.
From Brett's keynote he identified that:

  • we can never under estimate the power of the screen in young people's lives
  • the technology will change over time but our protective practises, responsibilities and beliefs should remain
  • we as teachers and parents are the only line of defence for our kids against the World-Wild Web.
  • we can instil quality online behaviours in our children
  • we must always believe we are making a difference to how our students interact socially within the internet.

The discussion we want to have here is a response to the following question:
What does cyber-safety look like in your school?
