About Jeremy

Jeremy Blackman is the Senior Cybersafety Specialist at The Alannah and Madeline Foundation, working with their eSmart team. His work centres on the convergence of technology and human behaviour; researching emerging trends in both the education setting and broader society with a particular focus on young people and the smart, safe and responsible use of digital technology. He has been involved in the education sphere as a professional for over 15 years, most recently as a senior VCE English teacher and ICT consultant at Methodist Ladies’ College in Kew.  Jeremy has worked with school communities and workplaces to create anti-bullying, acceptable use and social media policies. In his work, he also focuses on the ways that new technologies are altering or amplifying certain behavioural traits, such as attitudes to privacy and social interactions, specifically in the realm of online social networks.

About eSmart

Developed for Australian schools, eSmart is an easy-to-use, evidence-based and tested system to help schools manage cybersafety issues and deal with cyberbullying and bullying.

The eSmart system provides a framework for schools to implement whole-school culture and behaviour change relevant to the smart, safe and responsible use of digital technologies. The Alannah and Madeline Foundation developed the initiative with leading cybersafety and education experts, along with industry and federal and state government partners. eSmart, initially endorsed and funded by DEEWR, was piloted nationally in all school types and jurisdictions in 2010, and after its overwhelming success is now being rolled out in several states. Find out how your school can get involved!

Workshop Overview:

This workshop is solutions focused and will address what your school can do to help make young people and parents smart, safe and responsible users of technologies. The workshop will not only present participants with the latest facts and figures but it will also work through common cyber scenarios school face and how to effectively deal with them. The workshop will touch on all the key ingredients needed to help make your school eSmart -  including the drafting or reviewing of policies; how to best engage the parents of your school community regarding cyber issues; what a possible eSmart curriculum looks like and much more. Participants will leave feeling more confident to either continue their schools good work or in fact start work in this important area, knowing exactly how eSmart can help them do this.
