Digital Access Pass (DAP)
An interactive, online educational program designed, by students, to help teenagers navigate their online world in a way that is safe, relevant, engaging and purposeful.
What does it mean to be a competent, discerning and ethical user?
- Competent Users
You have the knowledge and skills to use the online environment capably and in a safe and secure manner.
- Discerning Users
You are sensible and selective in your online interaction and will approach online content with a critical eye.
- Ethical Users
You are aware of the legal and ethical dimensions of online options and consciously make good choices
To work together to create an educational program designed to encourage and support students to become competent, discerning and ethical users of their online environment.
To reach humans and help them understand that their online choices matter.
This initiative was started at Hillbrook by Miriam Scott, the Head of Digital Education, and a group of students, passionate about helping their peers learn how to avoid some of the landmines that were impacting them negatively online.
Since launching in 2018, the program has evolved and the target audience has grown from the Hillbrook community to a global one. The DAP Team took their message to social media and launched an awareness campaign that resulted in like-minded people and organisations contributing to courses to help build the Digital Access Pass.
