eSafety Early Years: We WATCH and EXPLORE on technology

This module focuses on how children engage with content in digital contexts. This is the most common way young children engage online, especially at home. You will learn how to choose content that encourages active participation and group interaction, and will be provided with practical examples of how to share this important information with your families.

eSafety Early Years: We MAKE and DO using technology

Fostering creativity is an essential component of early childhood education. This module explores the ways children can create in digital contexts. You will explore practical examples of the types of creative experiences educators set up, for children to learn with and about digital technologies. You will learn how to set up technology with online safety in mind and how to teach simple habits to make digital contexts safe.

eSafety Early Years: We SAY and SHARE with technology

Communicating in digital contexts is among the first experiences children have directly using technologies. This module examines the benefits and risks associated with communicating in digital contexts. You will learn how to identify and mitigate the online risks that can happen in these contexts.

eSafety Early Years: Creating a safe online environment

This module is specifically for Directors and Managers of early learning services throughout Australia. It is designed to enable a review of a service’s online-safety processes and practices. You will learn how to ensure online safety is considered in the same way as other safety practices at your service.

On completing the module, participants will have a collated list of all their answers. This list can be used as a guide to improve online safety practices, and as evidence for the service’s Quality Improvement Plan.
