Explain what you think are some of the key differences between cyber security, cyber awareness and cyber safety. To what extent are you teaching these in the classroom or to what extend do you think they should be taught and why?
Cyber security, awareness and safety are all interrelated and refer to the same idea, however, each has its own specific focus, like science has its own interrelated strands of biology, chemistry and physics and more but each have their own specific focus. The focus on cyber security is the practice of protecting digital technologies from digital attacks while cyber awareness is the knowledge, attitudes and behaviours of protection of our information assets and cyber safety is the safe and responsible use of these technologies.
As a preservice teacher, I do not teach any of these in the classroom but I truly believe that they are a required part of the technologies curriculum as we are moving further and further to technologies with everything we do and more and more children are getting on the internet at younger ages. They need to be taught how to be safe and responsible while on the internet.
