This eSafety page is designed to inform students about the positive aspects of new technologies alongside keeping safe in cyberspace.

The use of new technology as a means of communication has become part of our everyday lives, and are often used without a second thought. It is usually not until an issue arises that we stop and think about the consequences of our use of technology.

SOCIAL NETWORKING SITES (SNS)

Social Networking Sites such as Facebook are great to use, but here are a few pointers to keep your personal information as safe as possible:

WEBSITES

Anyone and everyone can have a website. This means that just because a website looks official doesn’t always mean it is.

Ask yourself:

CAMERA PHONES AND BLUETOOTH

Mobile Phones have Cameras, Bluetooth and Internet capabilities so you can be connected where ever you go. However, bear the following in mind:

MESSENGER PROGRAMS (IM)

Chatting with your friends online using Instant Messenger is fun and direct. However, there are a few things to bear in mind:

GENERAL INTERNET COMMON SENSE

Think about what information you put in your online profiles.

Everyone has a right to feel safe and for the majority, you will be lucky and not have any issues, however like the lottery...it could be you.
