Moreton Bay College is an eSmart school. An eSmart school is a school where the smart, safe and responsible use of information and communications
technology is a cultural norm. Students, teachers and the wider school community are equipped to embrace the best these technologies can offer, while being savvy about the pitfalls. eSmart schools connect Curriculum, Pastoral and IT to enable the management of digital citizenship, smart use of ICTs, cyberbullying and bullying.
The eSmart system guides the whole school community through a process of developing and implementing change. It is based on a great deal of research and evidence about what has worked to generate change in schools in Australia and around the world. The eSmart schools framework is organised into six domains:
1. Effective school organisation
2. School plans, policies and procedures
3. A respectful and caring school community
4. Effective teacher practices
5. An eSmart curriculum
6. Partnerships with parents and local communities
The eSmart program at Moreton Bay College is overseen by the MBC eSmart Committee. This committee meets each term and is comprised of staff members from the curriculum, pastoral and information technology teams, as well as students and parents. The committee drives the digital citizenship education process at the College through multiple initiatives including; guest speakers on cybersafety, cybersafety awareness weeks, eSmart promotions to the College community through the newsletter, social media and assemblies and the timely updating of our eSmart policies and procedures.
