Digital Literacy

The online environment should be a safe space in which everyone feels protected. Since education is at the heart of society, students should be taught to use technology in a responsible manner.

Participants are taught how to protect themselves and others from potential harm and ask for help if they need it. Making use of technology is a plus, but everyone should be aware of the dangers as well.

Digital Money

We realise there is a need to tackle safety issues especially when using the ATM and bank cards. Technology is also used to teach participants about managing savings, applying for a bank card, when to use a bank card and checking receipts.

Digital Communication

Using the internet safely and teaching how to communicate to others with respect. We also teach how others should communicate to the participant with respect.

Digital Literacy

Literacy also includes learning to differentiate between real and fake news. It is important to know how to switch off or ignore, news, advertisements or digital posts that are not true.

Digital Rights & Responsibilities

The online world has rules and also the participant has rights and responsibilities. The Internet can sometimes be used to harm or hurt others. It is important to learn about cyberbullying, and protect those that are most vulnerable. Equally participants learn that they too are responsible for their actions in a virtual space.

Digital Security

Security in the online world is important. When using computers, phones or iPads participants should be aware of how to keep their technology and passwords safe. Participants learn how to protect their devices as much as possible.

Digital Health & Wellness

Participants are taught how to protect themselves and others from potential harm and ask for help if they need it. Making use of technology is a plus, but everyone should be aware of the dangers as well.

Technology

In the book ‘Digital Citizenship in Schools’, Mike Ribble and Gerald Bailey talk about how technology influences the way people interact and the concept of digital citizenship in the classroom. The authors define nine elements of digital citizenship related to technology usage inside and outside the school environment.
