Connect / Lead / Learn
The SOOCed model believes strongly in a learning partnership between schools, students, and parents. We believe all stakeholders – the teacher, the student, and the parents – join together as a three-member team that works collaboratively in the education of young people to promote and improve student ability to be savvy, safe, and sound online.
Digital Citizenship 3-Tired eLearning Demonstration Site
This is a demonstration site, which allows you to browse through all the program's learning resources. Register by clicking on the Create New button. You will then be able to self-enrol in all the courses by clicking on the orange text in the course tiles.
Participating schools will have the four courses of the program installed on their own school server (or optional external secure server) to ensure participant data security. The program, once installed, is designed to be easily managed by school staff with little or no IT support.
Each course aims to:
Develop a supportive and connected school culture.
Help improve student motivation and learning whilst strengthening the connections between schools and their communities.
Provide a strong academic curriculum that supports each partner acquiring 21st Century Learning Skills.
Help maintain open lines of communication between the school, home, and community.
Encourage respectful and dignified relationships with all stakeholders.
Incorporate the personal and social issues of students into their daily learning experiences in a safe, supportive and respectful learning environment.
In partnership with the Victorian Parent Council
This program is designed to empower all stakeholders of a school community to work together to achieve sound Digital Citizenship practices. In general, parents have felt the least able to assist in raising digital citizens. The VPC recognises the approach of this program that includes the parents and has been actively promoting it in their circle of influence.
