The e-Safety Commissioner offers the best advice to help parents monitor their child’s activity, as well as ensure only safe websites are accessed:
e-Safety Taming Technology. Also, ask your Internet Service Provider (ISP) such as Telstra or Optus.
How do I monitor my child's social media use when I am also working?
- In line with our College policy on mobile phone use, we encourage families to limit their child’s access to mobile phones whilst student learning is
- We encourage parents who are working to consider options for working from home, or where this is not possible, to check in regularly throughout the
day with their child’s progress.
- Flexible school learning times may also enable students to engage in their learning when parent supervision is available.
- Parental controls installed on your child’s computer may also limit access to non-school activities whilst students are online.
- Using a family space for extended learning, not a bedroom, will also assist the monitoring of online activity. It should be a place that can be quiet
at times and have a strong wireless internet signal, if possible. Above all, it should be a space where you or another adult is present and monitoring
your children's learning.
