Concept 1: Explain what you think are some of the key differences between cyber security, cyber safety and cyber awareness. To what extent are you teaching these in the classroom or to what extent do you think they should be taught and why?
Cyber Security – Protecting devices such as computers, networks, programs and date using science technology and systems.
Cyber Awareness – Ensuring people have enough knowledge, an attitude and belief based around protection of information and personal devices.
Cyber Safety – Using technology in a safe and responsible manner which includes considering our ‘digital footprint’, collaborating kindly and applying ethics.
When in a classroom it is important students handle their devices and internet use with care. Students should be fully aware especially on being safe when sharing information and collaborating online. I believe in classrooms teachers are demonstrating safety as the primary topic of discussion. As students move up through primary school awareness becomes a priority followed by cyber security.
