Banovallum students learn about being responsible online

On #ThankATeacherDay, I visited Banovallum School to speak to students about the importance of being responsible online.

The 'Be Internet Citizens' team showed students how they be a positive voice on social media, spot fake news, distinguish between free speech and hate speech, and flag inappropriate content.

I'm pleased that, from this partnership with Google, YouTube and the Institute for Strategic Dialogue, Banovallum hopes to become a hub for other schools in the county to train their teachers to share the message of digital citizenship with their students.
