About this course

As with so many new technologies, social media became an all consuming part of us ours and our students lives before anyone really had a chance to set guidelines or establish best practices.
Schools, parents and governing bodies are now playing catchup when it comes to regulating use of social media.
One of the key challenges is that the student users of social media have far greater knowledge of the platforms and devices than those attempting to regulate and prevent harm.
This course sets out to change this by arming the participant with knowledge and strategies that can be used to ensure responsible use of social media in your schools and by your students.

You will learn:

  • How to detect the signs of inappropriate behaviour online
  • How to safely get the most out of social media
  • Options and strategies to ensure safe social media usage
Course Duration: 2 Hours

Australian Professional Standards for Teachers:

Tricia Munn


Tricia Munn has just one goal. To protect school aged children, families and adults from the widespread dangers that exist on social media networks. Through personal experience, years of diligent research and investigation, Tricia has identified critical problems in the security functions provided on all major social media platforms. Bullies, predators and harassment have flourished on social media and Tricia has discovered that poorly understood security settings are enabling the worst forms of online behaviour. 

Tricia’s dream is to help every family keep their children safe on social media while they are still able to enjoy the tremendous relationships to be had online.
