About the course

Course Description

This course will equip participants with an understanding of the various threats and challenges the digital world poses to today’s learners. 

As technology becomes commonplace inside and outside the classroom, teachers, and students must always show awareness of the new digital dilemmas that provide opportunities for them to think critically, behave safely, and participate responsibly with technology.

This is for teachers who would like to learn more about digital citizenship and would like to develop these skills in their students. 

This is also for educators who are also interested in creating programs for promoting digital citizenship for children 9 years old and above.

After the course, the participants should be able to:

1. Identify the attitudes, behaviors, skills, and values that must be developed to promote digital citizenship.

2. Explore online and offline tools that help reinforce digital citizenship skills.

3. Explain and discuss the various cyber risks in the digital world that learners should watch out for.

4. Create a case study based on real-life situations that feature one of the cyber risks and provide an analysis and recommendations for managing it.
