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.
Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet abstract
The cyber-safety message in these videos is appropriate for all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Health workers could help to promote the cyber-safety message by speaking to community members, such as their clients and local school students, about being cyber-safe and the negative effects of cyber-payback and cyber-bullying.
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.
