Unit 2: Task

  1. Explain what you think are some of the key differences between cyber security, cyber awareness and cyber safety. To what extent are you teaching these in the classroom or to what extend do you think they should be taught and why?

Cyber security is about different strategies an individual can utilise to be safe on the internet, such as avoiding sites with viruses, etc. Whereas, cyber awareness is being aware of the interactions you have with cyber activities and knowing right from wrong when engaging. Cyber safety is knowing what is unsafe on the internet or in the cyber world and putting strategies in place to avoid any misconduct. I believe in the classroom we are teaching children about all 3 aspects. Children can not be truly safe in the cyber world, if they have no cyber security strategies or cyber awareness in the first place. It is important to teach this at school so children are able to engage with one another and the world in a safe secure manner.
