I’ve been teaching for three years now, and have taught from Year 4 – 12. I’m particularly passionate about cybersafety and ICT, and would love to help raise strong digital citizens who know how to use technology in a safe and healthy way.
One particular resource I’ve been using that may be of interest to other teachers is actually one I created myself, “The Tweeting Galah.” This is a collection of short stories I self-published earlier this year, that help educate primary school students about different cybersafety issues, from cyberbullying to online predators. I’ve found this book to be a great conversation starter, as each story represents an issue that students can relate to, but offers food for thought! I believe this is a great “grab & go” resource that other teachers would find useful when addressing parts of the Digital Technologies, Protective Behaviours, Health, English and ICT Capability curriculum.
