* Scouts Australia Digital Guidelines [PDF, 2.28 MB]

With the revolution of information technology, the Internet has changed the very essence of how we live our lives. More and more Australians are using the Internet for information, social activities, shopping and entertainment. Tablet computers and mobile phones are quickly becoming the major devices used to access the Internet in Australia.
In keeping with its motto to ‘Be Prepared for New Adventure’, Scouts Australia has created some guidelines to help prepare its members, volunteers, supporters and employees for communicating online as well as on their mobile phones. This will protect them from harrassment or discrimination; and provide guidance on behaving ethically online via websites, social media, email as well as on mobile phones.

Listed by Scouts Victoria (Victorian Branch) in their Resource Library

Scouts Victoria places the highest priority on the safety of our members in all areas of their lives, including the online world. Members, especially young people, may not understand or be fully aware of the risks associated with social networking and the internet as a whole. Scouts Victoria understands that it is a whole new world for many members and coming to terms with how our lives are changing as social networking becomes a larger part of everyday life, particularly for younger members of the organisation, is a challenge. As such, Scouts Victoria has developed a set of simple guidelines that are aimed at supporting all members in using and engaging in social media when representing Scouting or a Group/ Section / Event.
