Workshop: eSmart

Cybersafety and Cyberbullying Prevention

with eSmart manager, Judi Fallon,

 

 Using a quality assurance approach, eSmart is a series of cultural change interventions aimed at creating positive, respectful and inclusive cultures which reduce bullying and cyberbullying and increase online safety. At the Foundation, we recognise that a whole-of-community approach is needed in order to create change.  Our goal is to create an eSmart Australia.

 

Our eSmart approach is based upon the premise that real behavioural and cultural change requires systemic, long-term, multifaceted interventions.  It is based on the most successful behaviour-change campaigns in Australia, the SunSmart and Quit campaigns.

Our eSmart systems have been developed by academic and industry experts, together with individuals involved in the SunSmart and Quit campaigns.  Recent evaluations show that they do create cultural change in organisations.

 

The Foundation is currently implementing two major eSmart initiatives across Australia.  eSmart Schools is currently being implemented in over 2000 schools across Australia; and eSmart Libraries is being rolled out to all 1500 public libraries nationally.
