Cyber-safety and indigenous youth

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    Information and Communication Technologies ('ICTs') provide great benefits to individuals and communities. It brings the world to our doorstep, into our home, and even into our bedroom; however, there are risks for both young and old. Exposure to the internet at a young age brings some challenges, especially when the child's knowledge of technology surpasses their parents or carers. Many adults and youth give little thought to how long digital content will last and, more importantly, how quick and easy it is to transfer digital images and videos. The most used form of communication between youth over the age of 13 is social media, and around half of all youth aged between 8 and 11 have used some form of social media account. With the rapid increase in the adoption of smartphone and mobile devices combined with open access to the internet, there has been an increase in cyber-safety issues, such as cyberbullying and sharing of explicit materials. This article explores cyber-safety, its associated issues and how it relates to Indigenous youth. Moreover, it discusses the current legislation in place to protect Australians in the digital domain, online industry policies, diversionary programs, censorship and cyber-safety programs targeted at Indigenous youth
