Cyber Security, Cyber Awareness and Cyber Safety

I really liked the infographic showing the differences between cyber security, cyber awareness and cyber safety. Briefly, cyber security relates to protecting computers, networks and our data from potential attack or misuse. Cyber awareness is knowing about potential these cyberattacks and how to protect our data. Finally, cyber safety is knowing how to participate in online communities safely and respectfully. As the teacher-librarian as my school, I touch on all of these topics in my lessons, but I definitely think it could be done in a more meaningful way for our students. I believe our students hear about ‘cyber safety’ alot, but may not see the genuine need to learn these skills. The video below explains how these skills fit easily into the role of a 21st century teacher-librarian.
