Some of the key differences between cyber security, cyber awareness and cyber safety include the operator and their knowledge and application regarding sharing online information, knowledge regarding what information should or should not be disclosed and the programs and applications that facilitate the safety of the networks in which cyber activity occurs. As an employed teacher aide and a preservice teacher, I have observed numerous teachers demonstrating and teaching elements of these cyber attributes to their classes. However, I believe more could be done to extend student knowledge in classrooms regarding cyber security and awareness. I believe these areas are extremely relevant in this technological age for children to be aware of and conscious of the seriousness of this issue. Online use for learning in schools and within the home environment is ever increasing and students need to know how not to expose themselves to cyber attacks and be aware of how to recognise online threats or potential network breaches.
