Road safety education

Educator Resources

Educators can implement RoadSet with flexibility.

Select additional resources, such as student activity worksheets, as needed and implement these in a way that works for your class.

Run the online content as a whole or separate the online modules into individual topics and run them over a series of lessons with your students.

Students need approximately 5-10 minutes to complete each of the online modules. The modules are self-paced and the learning platform will save each student’s progress ready for the next module.

The activities are aligned to the Year 9 and 10 Australian Curriculum Health and Physical Education learning area to support integration into existing school programs.

Russell White, CEO and Founder, tells us why!

Module 1

Road user environments

Students explore a variety of Australian road environments. They investigate city, suburban and rural areas, as well as changing weather conditions and the time of day. At the end of the module, students will have a deeper understanding of the different road user environments and conditions and how these affect our safety.

At the end of this module, it is intended that students will be able to:

  • identify changes in Australian road environments
  • understand changing weather conditions and the time of day can affect road users
  • recognise strategies to reduce risk in different road environments

Module 2

Pedestrians

Students explore the challenges faced by pedestrians on Australian roads. They learn how to minimise distractions with strategies such as listening for danger. In the user interactions, students experience how difficult it is to stay focused while distracted, especially by loud music and mobile phones. At the end of this module, students will have a better understanding about how to be a more responsible pedestrian and help minimise road incidents on our roads.

Module 3

Cyclists

Students learn how to stay safe when cycling. Students are introduced to a range of regulations and expectations that improve road safety. They learn strategies such as scanning the road, checking bicycles are roadworthy and wearing highly visible clothing. At the end of the module, students will have a better understanding of the hazards faced by cyclists and how to use the road more safely.

Module 5

Being a passenger

Students explore the responsibilities of being a passenger in a vehicle. They learn about the positive and negative impacts that they can have on the driver and road safety. Students recognise actions they can take to improve the safety of themselves and others on the road and that their actions help prevent road user incidents, even as a passenger.
