Digital wellness

Melissa shared a photo and suddenly it’s everywhere. Through a series of relatable characters and scenarios, students aged 11 to 16 learn about how to stay safe online, including cyberbullying and digital drama, digital footprints and protecting personal data, managing screen time, responsible content creation, searching effectively and evaluating content.

Developed with teachers and subject matter experts, seven self-contained lessons are each centred around a different online learning module.
