eSmart, an initiative of the Alannah & Madeline Foundation, uses a cultural change approach to improve cyber safety and reduce cyberbullying.
As part of eSmart, we currently run three programs – eSmart Schools, eSmart Libraries and the eSmart Digital Licence.
eSmart Schools and eSmart Libraries provides a prevention and risk management framework to schools and libraries across the country, helping them better integrate cyber safety practices and promote the safe use of online technology in their community.
The eSmart Digital Licence complements the eSmart Schools Framework and can also be used at home to help parents teach their children about cyber safety. The Digital Licence is an online challenge which uses quizzes, videos and games to teach school-age children how to play, learn and socialise online in a smart, safe and responsible way.
As the official Technology Partner, CoreMind built, launched and scaled the system end-to-end, working with The Alannah and Madeline Foundation, and supported by Google Australia.
CoreMind drove requirements analysis, built a proof of concept prototype, introduced Agile techniques to the client and performed the final build prior to launch.
The system is now operating with almost zero downtime, including frequent changes, and is on target to achieve the goal of reaching every Grade 6 student in the country in its first year.
The Digital Licence was also voted “Highly Commended” in the 2015 Australia & New Zealand Internet Awards (ANZIA) for Security and Safety.
