UNIT 2- QUESTION 1: Explain what you think are some of the key differences between cyber security, cyber awareness and cyber safety. To what extent are you teaching these in the classroom or do you think they should be taught?
– Cyber security is the actions that we have done to protect our internet-connected systems from various cyber-attacks and threats and illegal access.
– Cyber awareness means the understanding about the actions and practices as well as threats from cyber-attacks.
– Cyber safety can be understood as actions or measures as well as our knowledge and cyber skills in order that we are responsibly and securely online.
As a teacher at an upper secondary school, I understand that it is very important to teach my students how to be safe and secure in cyber learning environment. The following contents should be taught in my classrooms. Firstly, they should raise awareness of cyber environment in order that they will know how to identify dangers and tackle them. They will know how much to share; what not to share and with whom. They will also learn how to surf in a secure environment. Furthermore, they will know how to use the internet to learn and build a safe network. They will also understand that such risky challenges are the new faces of cyber bullying and how to tackle them.
