Unit 2: Question 1

Cyber security: The computer science technologies and systems (often developed by professionals) that work to protect computers, networks, and data.

Cyber awareness: Our knowledge of the risks posed to our personal information/data while using ICT’s and the strategies that can be used to protect it.

Cyber safety: The enactment of safe and responsible practices while using ICT’s.


As a PST, I have not had much of an opportunity to teach cyber awareness. However, I have done simple things such as, if I was going to use a website for an in class activity, I would check that the website was safe and secure to use before directing students to it. Unfortunately, in my experience many teachers (particularly those of the older generation) do not have great cyber awareness and as such, are less able to teach cyber safety practices to their students.
