Do your teens roll their eyes when you mention cybersafety, cyberbullying and digital citizenship? So get them to watch this instead! After winning 3 international awards the Australian Communications and Media Authority’s short film Tagged has now scored top marks at home.
Using drama to engage its young audience, Tagged realistically portrays how online behaviour can have offline consequences. Tagged depicts a group of high-school friends who post a rumour online about a rival – sparking a chain reaction with far-reaching ramifications.
It targets people aged 14 years and over and tackles important contemporary themes about making positive choices online, being aware of the risks of cyberbullying and sexting, and managing your digital reputation.
