Cyber Safety Talk For Students

60 Minute Presentation

Large or small groups

As an online media pioneer and lover of gaming and social media, Leonie Smith fully understands why young people are so fascinated with being online. But as a parent and cyber safety educator she also knows how important it is that kids are safe online, protected from scams, bullying, invasions of privacy, spamming and predatory behaviour. Her talks give students the tools to keep themselves safer online, whether it’s through message apps, social media, online gaming or protecting themselves from virus’s or hacking.


Will Kids Really LISTEN To This Talk?

Because Leonie does NOT approach these talks from a negative point of view, but presents these talks as a person who loves social media, technology and gaming, it’s not long before the students in the audience realise that Leonie actually knows a bit about what she is talking about.

During her presentations Leonie totally engages her audience, between having them sitting on the edge of their seats listening intently, to laughing and almost rolling in the isles. The presentation whilst injected with humour, is of course about a very serious subject matter, and that is emphasised.

After every talk Leonie finds the students come up and talk to her, relating their own experiences and asking more in-depth questions about their own usage. Her talks often result in students seeking out help from their teachers and parents afterwards. Her talks can bring up issues that students hadn’t thought were able to be resolved.

“Our Year 10 students appreciated Leonie’s well prepared and up to date workshop. The step-by-step approach to Facebook privacy settings was particularly valuable as even if you had the vocabulary to search for approaches to protect your privacy, the students experience was online tutorials did not match Facebook’s current interface – whereas Leonie was across the most recent changes. Students were able to nominate sites and apps that they use prior to the workshop and Leonie was able to provide guidance for these. We have seen positive action taken by groups of students to online behaviour that required a response following Leonie’s visit this year.” Duncan Gillespie, Director of ICT The Friends’ School North Hobart  TAS 7002 Australia +61362102200
