Introduction: Meet the Characters

Before you watch the episodes, check out this! 


Marty welcomes you to Ollie Online, introduces the characters and explains what "down under' means.

The Internet is Like a Theme Park

Key Understandings:

The internet is like a theme park. Both can be amazing, awesome and fun BUT sometimes confusing, scary or worrying.


We need to do things to keep safe on the internet, just like at a theme park. For example: stay with adults, stick to places meant for kids and check in if we feel unsafe.

Screen Time & Green Time

Key Understandings:

It's healthy to have a balance between screen time and green time.


Green time can be anything we do that is not on our screens. Examples include: sport, dance, riding a bike, trampolining, playing in nature, Lego, board games, puzzles, cooking, reading, mindfulness and much more!


Green time helps us grow our minds and bodies.

Take Care, Don't Share

Digital Footprints are a record of what you do online, including the sites you visit and the things you share. A trail is a path or track that someone can follow.


Private Information is information about you that can be used to identify who you are.


We never share our full name, address, phone number, age, birthday or school name.

Take Care, Don't Share

Key Understandings:

The internet is a public place and not everyone is can be trusted.

To keep us safe, we need to always take care and not share...personal information.


Personal information can be used to identify you and includes: photos, full name, where you live, your family, passwords
