Developing Smart Digital Citizens

CyberSharp is committed to building an empowered and knowledgeable digital community through education and awareness related to online behaviour. We believe that understanding the risks of inappropriate behaviour and being taught effective online communication will equip our children to thrive in a digital world.

Who We Are

CyberSharp was founded by a group of concerned parents with a common goal of keeping our children safe online.

Over the past few years, it has become increasingly apparent that children and technology are deeply intertwined. The world has changed and the use of digital devices by all ages of children has become the norm. Digital technology is here to stay.

The founders of CyberSharp, through personal experiences recognised that the role of a parent needs to include a clear understanding of the digital world that their children live in. We collaborated as parents and experienced educators, to package a unique solution that addresses the challenges of living in a digital world. Our holistic solution actively engages key role players to fulfil the goal of guiding our children to become smart digital citizens.

We believe that schools are perfectly positioned to implement an educational platform that addresses this vital subject for teachers, parents and children. CyberSharp provides the tools and resources to educate and improve social media behavior, smart phone use and appropriate digital communication.

Our Goals

What We Aim to Achieve

Our goal is to empower our children through our awareness and education program to be safe and smart in a digital world.

We aim to improve social media behaviour, digital device usage and online communication in children of all ages. The ultimate aim is to equip children with the skills to thrive in an online world while avoiding the dangers and risks associated with it.
