IPAD Program/Cyber Bullying

CYBERSAFETY NOTE - 20th July 2016

It has come to our attention that many of our students have downloaded an app called Musical.ly. Musical.ly is a social media music app where users can watch user generated lip sync video, and create video of themselves lip-syncing or dancing to music available on the app. It is a 13+ app. It’s important to note that we have not found any Hamlyn Banks students with inappropriate video content and can see that students have been students enjoying this with their friends.

IPAD Program/Cyber Bullying Workshop

Mrs Duan, Mr Maultby and Mrs Devcic presented information about the IPAD Program and Cyber Bullying during the Family Picnic, thanks to all who attended.

As part of the presentation we discussed a resource for parents that could help you and your families understand how to prevent and respond to any incidents that could occur as you children increase their use of and access to cyber communication. I encourage you to explore the site to build your capacity to support your children in being responsible users of technology.
