Prior to designing cybersmart learning we recommend reading and connecting with the Smart Footprint Cybersmart Curriculum. The learning outcomes are the same for all our young people. How you engage your learners with the learning and connect with these outcomes will be in response to the strengths and interests of your learners.
Smart learners are creating a positive digital footprint
- Think about how you advertise yourself online
- Remember it will be there forever
- Share content that you and your whānau will be proud of
- Understand the difference between private and public information
Being cybersmart empowers our young people to become confident decision makers when they share and interact online and helps create a positive digital footprint.
Whenever and wherever we share online it's personal, visible and amplified. It is personal because we are sharing information about ourselves. Creating a positive digital footprint means learning to make smart decisions about what personal information we share and what personal information we keep private. If we are not sure we check with a trusted adult or keep it private.
