Today’s SMH reports “Kids as young as four posting explicit images and being groomed online.”
As a result, the AFP-led ThinkUKnow program will now be introduced to teach online safety to kindergarten children. These classes already exist for grades three upwards.
It’s a sad and upsetting report – and one that’s close to many of us.
Folk has worked with the AFP since 2015 to help develop and create the ThinkUKnow life-changing educational and awareness presentation resources (ranging from three- to fifteen-year-olds).
We want every job we do to be effective. Never more than this one.
ThinkUKnow is a free, evidence-based cyber safety program that provides presentations to Australian parents, carers and teachers and students.
It provides information on the technologies young people use, the challenges they may face, and importantly, how they can be overcome. Presentations are delivered face to face or digitally.
