e-Safety Tip: ReThink App

An app designed by a teenager is being used to help reduce Online Bullying. ReThink is available for free on the iTunes and Android store – it provides Smart Phones and Tablets with an alternative keyboard that detects when someone is about to post something offensive and gives them a chance to ‘rethink’ the message before it is posted.

Research has found that with ReThink, young people change their mind 93% of the time and decide not to post an offensive message on social media. ReThink has been honored with several national and international awards – including the Google Science Fair – Global Finalist.
