Flourishing and Floundering: The challenges and opportunities for young people in the online world

Tuesday 2nd April 2019


The Australian College of Educators and St Margaret’s & Berwick Grammar School present the 2019 Unicorn Series:

Flourishing and Floundering: The challenges and opportunities for young people in the online world


Event Details

Join our Principal, Ms Annette Rome, as she speaks with Ms Robyn Treyvaud, and a panel of our students, teachers and school psychologist about the challenges and opportunities for our young people in the online world.

Digital citizenship is about using technology responsibly and not misusing it to the disadvantage of others. As we spend more time online, it is vital to understand how to stay safe online, especially for the young people in our care.

Social networking is everywhere, becoming a vital tool for success in social, educational and work environments. The same platforms that enable success, however, can also form the basis of bullying and other undesirable outcomes.

How can we, as parents, carers and educators, help our young people not only survive but also thrive in this digital world?

This panel discussion will tease out this question, amongst others, as we discuss the factors that can contribute to how we sometimes flounder in an online world but also how we could flourish in the same environment.
