08 NEWS FRIDAY JUNE 20 2014 CAVE01Z01MA - V1 Learn to stay safe online INDIVIDUALS in remote communities are being given the opportunity to explore safe communication lines via the internet as part of a new cyber safety training initiative. The project delivered by the Central Australia Youth LinkUp Service, is being rolled out through NT Libraries in Ali Curung, Ikuntji, Papunya, Mount Liebig and Kintore under the Remote Indigenous Public Internet Access program. CAYLUS project worker Leyla Iten said the organisation had been working with small groups to develop regional resources for schools, individuals, families and youth services for internet safety. Access to the internet is increasing in remote areas, and is becoming a very useful and normal part of life for many people living in remote communities, she said. With internet use, remote communities are able to communicate effectively and efficiently in many instances where before, or in many cases, still faxes, mail and landlines are not always available or effective in reaching family, friends or services. Ensuring communities can develop a response to concerns, which may arise out internet use, is something the Australian community is addressing, especially in schools and youth services. (This program) benefits participants by working collaboratively in creating resources, including paintings, stories and media, which is a fun and engaging process while issues of concern regarding cyber safety may be raised and addressed. It is about sharing some of the existing resources ... as well as other relevant media, which are a great platform for talking about local and regional issues.
