bCyberwise’ focuses on the importance of being safe and respectful online. Helping your child understand why being a responsible digital citizen is vital for their own safety as well as their friends and family.

What did they learn?
Children today really are digital natives, so it is more crucial than ever that they understand the importance of being safe and respectful whilst learning and having fun online. ‘bCyberwise’ is about cybersafety, cyber security and cyber ethics. This module helps children to develop their knowledge and skills around these three areas. The children learn about:

  • How to be responsible and respectful when using online technology
  • The importance of keeping personal information safe and not telling other people private passwords or arranging to meet with strangers
  • Strategies to use if exposed to inappropriate content online; for example deleting and blocking unwanted messages or talking to an adult
  • What to do if they or their friends experience cyberbullying or are being cyberbullied themselves.
