Exploiting the benefits of the new era which is heavily characterized by continuous technological advances, it goes unchallenged that the Internet could be listed as one of the most striking developments. Internet search engines for example have at some high degree effectively replaced the libraries. Sitting at the ease of your home, you can now search online for any kind of up-to-date information which will immediately be presented on the screen of your device. At the same time though, internet surfing entails dangers and risks which can affect among others the psychological and social status of the user and children more importantly. This is exactly where the role of teachers becomes essential in educating children on what online safety is all about and how they could explore the beautiful digital world while protecting themselves and mitigating the online risks.
In this section of our website, CyberEthics provides you with several tips and teaching resources which can be utilized in order to teach your students how to be responsible and conscious online.
In addition, we would like to take this opportunity to inform you that all users have a mutual responsibility towards the creation of a better internet. To achieve this goal, it’s our duty to prevent and report any illegal activities online, such as child online sexual exploitation and abuse, sexual harassment or attempts to lure children via electronic communication. If you come across such incidences, you should know that it’s your duty to report them. The ‘CyberEthics’ Hotline receives anonymous reports related to illegal content and activities found online. Please call us at 22 674747 or click the Report button on the right corner of the screen to fill in a report.
Have fun and good luck with the exploitation of the Internet at your school!
