R We Cyber Safe?

I attended Şirin Soyoz’s talk on Internet Safety, called Internet Safety Quiz – Are you Cyber-well? Atlhough it is a very important issue, I think it is often neglected as we don’t know what to do.

In this fun, quiz-formatted session we tried to define what e-safety is, examined how much we know and what we can do to help our schools develop e-safety policies.

We all agreed that we can’t keep our kids away from computers, cyber world but we have to teach how to protect themselves from the dangers as they can be responsible for their own sharings.

Şirin also reminded how it is similar to walking in the street and pointed out that both the teachers and the parents don’t actually know how to deal with e-safety.

What are the issues we should consider when thinking about e-safety?

  • Bullying
  • Downloading
  • Netiquette
  • Privacy
