Cyberwellness

 

‘Parents play a key role in shaping students’ behaviour in cyber space. Parents are critical in anchoring strong values in their children to better manage their child’s internet exposure. Through the joint effort of parents and schools, we can ensure that our students adopt the right values and attitude when using technology.’
Mr. Hawazi Daipi
Senior Parliamentary Secretary Ministry of Education and Ministry of Manpower

Cyberwellness refers to the positive well-being of Internet users. It involves an understanding of the risks of harmful online behaviours, an awareness of how to protect oneself and other Internet users from such behaviours.

Our school adopts MOE’s “Sense-Think-Act” framework to develop the child’s instinct to protect and empower him to take responsibility for his own well-being in cyberspace. The two principles, ‘Respect for Self and Others’ and ‘Safe and Responsible Use’ when adhered to will anchor your child’s well-being in cyberspace as they will then be able to make careful and well-considered decisions.
 

Sense: Your child should be able to identify the possible risks.


Think: Your child should be able to analyse, evaluate and reflect on the online situation they are facing based on the two principles.

Act: Your child should be able to translate his/her understanding into actions that will keep him/her safe while online.
