Cyber security, cyber awareness and cyber safety are three distinct but interrelated concepts. Cyber security refers to the protection of computers, programs, data and information, while cyber awareness is the knowledge, attitude and behaviours that one has in aim to protect information, and cyber safety is the safe and responsible use of ICT.
As a pre-service teacher, I have not had the opportunity to teach these three concepts in a classroom, however I have come to learn the importance of ensuring students, as users of technology, understand the importance of knowing cyber security, awareness and safety. With this, it is crucial they become safe and responsible users of technology as more children are accessing it, and it is a part of the job as teachers to ensure they are being guided to do so.
