Cyber Security and the BEACON App | Parent Information Session

We had a wonderful and informative Parent Information Session booked for Term 1 which was delayed due to Covid-19 restrictions. The team at Telethon Kids Institute have provided a video link to the session, which you can view below.

Presented by Bec Nguyen, Digital Projects Manager at Telethon Kids Institute.
In this half-hour presentation, Bec discusses online safety, cyber security for children, dealing with cyber behaviour issues and the launching of the Beacon App.

BEACON aims to improve the digital future for Australian children by building parents’ and carers’ digital skills so they can confidently navigate their children’s use of digital technology in a positive way and minimise potential harms associated with being online.

The BEACON App integrates seamlessly into parents’ daily lives, delivering the most trusted and up-to-date information backed by behavioural science research, as well as personalised support, ideas and strategies at their fingertips to navigate the ever-changing online world.
