Tablets were most popular, followed by computers, TVs and smartphones. Smartphones in particular make parental supervision more difficult than ever.
ThinkUKnow is a partnership between the Australian Federal Police (AFP), Datacom, Microsoft Australia and the Commonwealth Bank, partnering with local communities via state and territory police. It is aimed at raising children’s cyber-safety awareness and educating Australian communities on how they can keep their children safe online.
As a lead sponsor of ThinkUKnow, Datacom provides the behind-the-scenes technical and logistical support, as well as providing on-ground volunteers across the country delivering presentations to school kids and parents alike.
The rules of parenting haven’t changed in generations – parents still need to connect and engage with their children’s interests on a day-to-day basis. However, Datacom updates and delivers this message with a pro-technology focus – without any commercial aspect or bias. There are no fast solutions.
As one of the most active partners in the programme, Datacom has 50 volunteers across Australia delivering open-forum presentations to more than 9,200 parents, teachers and carers across 270 schools, community groups and organisations last year. They in turn can spread the message further and help keep a generation of young people safe online.
