Digital Safety: Role Of Schools, Colleges And Universities In Raising Awareness

In our special show, we will focus on the role that schools, colleges and universities can play in raising this awareness and, just as importantly, in creating the right value system. There is a need to add digital safety education as a course in school and college curriculums to ensure compulsory guidance on safe internet practices. Part of the solution is to "train the trainers", i.e. support teachers and provide them with the skills needed to deliver a digital skills-related curriculum. And it is time to not only look at solutions within the classroom but also open these discussions to an entire campus.


Digital environment that the pandemic created has further taken over practically every aspect of our lives. All our needs are being met online. Young adults, especially those in schools, are consuming and interacting with data like never before. But we are not just getting from the online world, we are also giving out something vital - information. About us. Without even knowing it.

Cybercrime, which includes everything from theft and embezzlement to data hacking and identity theft, was up 600% as a result of the pandemic. But the vast majority of the teens and young adults are not aware of the perils of the online world.

Issues of data security and privacy are not widely known. The frequent use of digital tools to lure young people into dangerous and compromising situations is not known. The infinite possibilities and types of cybercrime are not known.
