I believe it is important to teach students what each cyber safety, cyber security and cyber awareness is so that they will have a strong understand of how the cyber world works and how they can engage in it whilst being safe. Cyber security is the protection of computers, networks and data from ‘hackers’ who might try and attack these platforms. Cyber awareness is the knowledge of what is appropriate and inappropriate online behaviour and cyber safety is the practice and knowledge of online engaging and communication whilst keeping yourself and others safe. I think all of these areas should be taught in the classroom to a degree. It is not a necessity for students to understand to a full extent however students must understand cyber awareness and be able to practice to a high level cyber safety.
