Strong choices

 

Overview

Strong choices is an innovative program that uses various forms of technology to address the increasing incidence of cyber-bullying, cyber-payback, and the distribution of inappropriate images via technology in Indigenous communities across the Northern Territory. The program involved the development of a series of video clips that feature popular Tiwi Island band B2M who raise awareness about the negative personal and societal implications of using technology to circulate harmful and offensive material. A range of technological channels (such as social media, mobile phones, and Bluetooth) will be used to distribute the video clips among Indigenous communities, and AFL Northern Territory will assist in the delivery of key messages.

This series of six videos has been developed to raise awareness among Indigenous communities in the Northern Territory about cyber-safety. The videos feature Tiwi Islands music group, B2M, who encourage Indigenous people to be wise and smart about the information they send using digital technology, and to remember that no information is secret in the digital world and everything can be tracked. The videos were produced as part of the Strong choices program, which seeks to address the increase in cyber-bullying, cyber-payback, and the distribution of inappropriate material via technology in Indigenous communities across the Northern Territory.
