What is Bronze e-Lifesaving?
Bronze e-Lifesaving is an interactive e-learning program that challenges and engages youth on issues such as risk-taking behaviour, peer influences and alcohol consumption when recreating in and around water.
Using aquatic themes, students explore personal attitudes, beliefs and personal relationships and will develop skills in making informed decisions, refusal tactics and leadership. Bronze e-Lifesaving teaches students survival skills, rescue techniques and basic emergency and first aid care for managing situations where their own or others’ wellbeing and safety may be at risk.
The Bronze e-Lifesaving program can be easily implemented in the classroom and has strong links to the learning outcomes in the Australian Curriculum: Health and Physical Education. It includes two units:
- Unit 1. Designed to suit Year 7 and 8 students
- Unit 2. Aimed at Years 9 and 10
The program is FREE to Australian secondary school students.
Each module follows a similar structure to provide interactive and meaningful content to engage the learner and aid the teacher to take a facilitator role. Some of the key components include:
- Video narratives and scenarios
- Multiple choice questions
- Flip tiles and Slideshows
- Drag and drop, polls and ranking
- Quizzes and questions
- Reflective and problem solving tasks
