Understanding Cyber Wellness
Our students today belong to a generation who are always connected. The open nature of the internet poses danger to our students as it can expose them to undesirable content and to unnecessary hurts.
Cyber safety has become a huge part of today’s society, and something that parents need to be vigilant about.
Hence, Cyber Wellness is important as it looks into the positive well-being of students as they navigate the cyberspace.
What is Cyber Wellness?
Cyber Wellness refers to the positive well-being of internet users. It involves an understanding of the norms of appropriate, responsible behaviour with regard to technology use as well as knowledge, skills, values and attitudes on how to protect oneself and other internet users in the cyber world.
The MOE Cyber Wellness Framework guides schools in planning for a Cyber Wellness programme. It focuses on developing the child’s instinct to protect himself and empowers him to take responsibility for his own wellbeing in cyberspace. It highlights two principles to guide students in their actions, describes a 3-step process to explore Cyber Wellness issues and encourages schools to partner parents in promoting Cyber Wellness among students.
