A national scheme has been launched in WA which aims to help parents and teachers educate children about online dangers.
The ‘ThinkUKnow’ course covers a range of internet subjects including online sexual exploitation, cyber bullying and scams.
The course is run by the Australian Federal Police.
The Minister for Home Affairs Brendan O’Connor says it is the best way to protect children who are vulnerable when using the internet.
“So this is about providing information, alerting parents to potential dangers, emphasising the importance of discussing these issues with their children.”
