Edumazing represents a shared passion to make a positive difference in the lives of learners of all ages.

We are committed to a brave and innovative vision to change the paradigm of learning and wellbeing for a sustainable and positive future. We provide outstanding learning and wellbeing programs, resources and professional learning opportunities that empower learners, educators, families and communities especially through the power of Human Literacy™.

For educators, we offer a range of professional development workshops, presentations and consultancy to improve the quality of teaching, learning and leadership in line with VIT and AITSL standards. Our presenters and consultants are renowned for their wealth of knowledge and expertise in education, leadership, wellbeing, counselling and working with students with special needs. They bring rich and unprecedented professional learning experiences that raise professional standards and improve professional efficacy.

Our dynamic workshops are practical and research-based, offering strategies to address the diverse needs of learners in innovative and powerful ways. We offer workshops in Human Literacy, Challenging Behaviours, Leadership, Digital Learning and Cybersafety, along with a range of other areas to address the immediate needs of educators and leaders across all educational and community sectors.

For pre-service and graduate teachers we offer additional expertise to ensure you begin your professional journey with confidence and success. Our EdGrad Academy represents an inspiring and supportive community representing Pre-Service, Graduate and Casual Relief Teachers to share information and resources, discuss experiences and gain knowledge to build and sustain excellence in their teaching practice.

For young people and families, we offer Learning Coaching and Counselling. These are built on the principles of understanding and supporting the holistic needs of individual learners, helping them to realise their full potential and achieve lifelong learning success. Learning Coaching acknowledges that everyone learns in different ways. It differs from tutoring by focusing on changing the core issues that prevent a learner from reaching their potential whilst still addressing the skills they need to succeed.

As a connected and growing community of caring professionals, educators, young people and families, join us to discover the positive difference we can make in your learning and life just as we have done with so many other professionals, young people and families.

Safer Internet Day

2 Feb
On Tuesday 9th February it’s Safer Internet Day. This is a great time to celebrate your commitment to Cybersafety.
This initiative is led by the Office of the Children’s eSafety Commissioner. It is important to familiarise yourself with this online safety office that was established last year here in Australia. The Office of the Children’s eSafety Commissioner provides current information and resources for online safety. It also supersedes the previous Cybersmart website. Another very important part of this office is to provide support for children experiencing cyberbullying through its complaints service, something all schools and parents should know about. The website is located at https://www.esafety.gov.au.
You can register to view scheduled presentations as part of Safer Internet Day to share with your students at: https://www.esafety.gov.au/about-the-office/events/safer-internet-day-2016. You can also join online conversations using #SID2016. There are many ideas you can also use to host this day on this website.
saferinternetSafe Internet Day reminds us of the importance of Cybersafety awareness and positive action in our schools, at home and within our community to improve our knowledge of how to be safe online. Cybersafety awareness is not limited to school aged children but for everyone who uses or intends to use the Internet. The online world is ever changing. It has many valuable learning and life experiences. There are also possible risks and challenges. It’s important for all of us to keep up-to-date with what is happening so we are best equipped to know what to do if we are faced with a threatening situation.
Often schools may find they are scheduling in time for explicit Cybersafety awareness sessions at different times of the year or even only once throughout the year thinking this is enough. Actually it isn’t. Cybersafety should be viewed as an ongoing learning process both at school and at home. Explicit learning experiences are important. Along with this, there are many different ways we can indirectly and directly incorporate Cybersafety within our normal school day. One simple example is to have consistent conversations with your students about what they are doing online, where they are online and who can access what they are doing. You can model this as you or your students are about to go online and use a website during any learning experience. This creates a habit of thinking about where they are and being conscious of what is going on.
As you celebrate Safer Internet Day, use this important time to revisit your Cybersafety journey. Celebrate what you have already achieved. Think about and plan how you will regularly provide support to your students throughout the year and work with their parents to ensure there is a consistent approach to Cybersafety.
We hope you enjoy Safer Internet Day and the benefits it will bring to your ongoing Cybersafety commitment.
At Edumazing, we have developed a highly successful whole school community Cybersafety program called Safely ConnectED as part of our ongoing commitment to Human Literacy in schools and communities. This program has been vital in creating proactive cybersafe communities.
