why eSafety?

Technology and the Internet are currently two of the most important parts of our lives. Nearly every member of today’s youth population grew up in a world that was immersed in the tech revolution, yet few are taught to actually stay safe in the rapidly growing tech world.

This is a problem.

While tech and the internet are awesome in most ways, they can also open doors to some not so great things when its users don’t know how to use them safely. It is for this reason that children. and even adults, everywhere should be taught eSafety – the basics of staying safe online – because it is not only an interesting topic that concerns something relevant to all of us, but it is also a crucial life skill in today’s world.
