Ollie Online (Gr Prep - 2)

A 45 minute high energy, engaging and interactive presentation aimed at Grades Foundation, One and Two.

Australian & Victorian Curriculum aligned.

Themes include:

  • what exactly is the internet?

  • balancing screen time and 'green time'

  • speaking with trusted adults

  • sharing information online

We believe a single incursion does not constitute a comprehensive cyber safety or digital citizenship education. We highly recommend lessons to support, scaffold and build upon Ollie Online that are available free from Common Sense Education.

Green Time & Screen Time

The biggest factor in keeping young people safe online is their communication and relationships with the adults in their lives. Ollie reinforces the importance of checking and speaking with a trusted adult when challenges arise online.

In order to establish good habits from an early age, Ollie explores what information is considered private and how important it is to keep this information offline.

A growing challenge for children and families is the excessive use of screens. Ollie introduces the concept of ‘green time’ and how important it is to balance your screen time with green time.

TEACHER TESTIMONIALS

"The incursion was fantastic. The students loved the slides and sound effects and they were engaged the entire time."

"Ollie Online is a fantastic way to introduce students to positive online habits. My Prep students absolutely loved Ollie the puppet and were kept engaged throughout the session. They still remember the chants and strategies they learnt weeks later!"
