St Brigid’s recommends parents use the Beacon (Cyber Safety App) and the Australian Government’s E-Safety Guide to support healthy and safe technology practices at home.
Beacon Cyber Safety App
With funding from Bankwest, the Telethon Kids Institute has developed a cyber safety educational app designed to keep parents and carers up to date with trusted, tailored information to help them teach their children to interact safely online. The Beacon app is the result of a decade of WA research on children’s technology use, cyber safety, and parent behaviour. The app aims to provide parents and carers with knowledge and skills to help children thrive in a digital world by building their capacity to support children to use digital technology in a positive way. The App delivers reliable information backed by research and behavioural science, as well as ideas, strategies, and personalised support. St Brigid’s, through our Child Safe Framework, is committed to modelling healthy, respectful relationships for our students both in the physical and online environments.
The “Beacon: Cyber Safety” App is available to download now for both iOS and Android.
Telethon Kids Institute has also developed a toolkit with content for newsletters and online posts for you to raise awareness with parents.Information about the toolkit can be accessed using this link: Beacon Cyber Safety Toolkit Guide
