What exactly is CyberEcho?
Bravehearts have worked closely with Mediasphere over the last number of months to create an innovative learning program for teaching cyber-safety to upper primary students called CyberEcho. Bravehearts created CyberEcho to provide kids with the correct knowledge and information to make them aware of the dangers online and how to be online safely. The target age group for CyberEcho is students between the ages of 8 to 12 years old (years 4-6).
CyberEcho is developed in constitution with Australian Federal Force and the Office of the Children’s eSafety Commissioner.
CyberEcho aims to educate young people around the positive and exciting potential of the online world, as well as the dangers of cyber communication, and to provide them with the skills and strategies to help them learn, interact and communicate safely while online.
Using PowerHouse to incorporate lessons both offline and online allows for teacher facilitated, interactive activities and assessment that is individually managed by the schools and teachers.
This module is purchased per class and learning is managed by the class teacher online, this allows the class teacher to track student progress, check assessment results, print out course pages and issue the certificates of completion.
The system provides a maximum of 35 individual student accounts so each student can work at their own pace through the module. The online platform adopts a blended learning style that includes audio presentations, film clips, posters, online assessment, interactive activities and a reflective journal. The journal is a large part of the online resource provided as a printable pdf and must be used ‘offline’ as a student workbook and referred to throughout the course. The journal can also be used for assessment purposes, facilitate discussion, relate to real life experiences and reflect on the learning outcomes.
