A Digital Guardian for Students
Schools are now able to embrace internet-based teaching and learning resources with the peace of mind that students are guided to improve their online behaviour using CyberHound’s unique cybersafety and welfare tools.
CyberHound’s platform has been built specifically for schools and utilises unique features designed in consultation with schools and professional advisors. These solutions provide the key ingredients to assist students in developing positive online conduct – immediate feedback for inappropriate behaviour, real-time reports for students (LiveView) and links to supporting resources.
Managing Online Risk
CyberHound can assist students in using appropriate web content as well as learning how to communicate online, enabling schools to safely integrate tools such as Twitter and Facebook into communication and learning.
CyberHound has provided us with the tools to engage students in new ways of learning, while ensuring social media use is managed appropriately.

Example of Digital Citizenship Enablement
Melbourne High School used the platform to engage students in creating a modern adaptation of a Shakespearean play – using a Facebook wall and students posting for their character.
The results included learning enablement and benefits in the students’ learning. In addition the school found the student wellbeing capabilities beneficial in identifying risks such as self-harm and vulnerability to inappropriate online content.
Reduces the workload for school leader
CyberHound’s Digital Citizenship platform reduces the workload for school leaders by helping students develop better online behaviour through self-learning and LiveView reports.
Serious issues are still escalated for additional support and action as necessary.
