Digital Citizenship in New Zealand Schools
significant changes to technology and the way it is used presents new
challenges for schools to create an environment where teachers and students are
confident in the safe and secure use of ICT.
The focus of cybersafety has expanded beyond policies and procedures to include discussion, action, and teachable moments in the classroom. Students need to build skills and knowledge to effectively manage cyber challenges themselves, and become confident and successful digital citizens.
In response to the changing needs of schools, NetSafe has developed the Learn: Guide: Protect: framework.
Netsafe previously provided cybersafety teaching resources and activities on its site the grid. All content from the grid has been transitioned to the new searchable, interactive site http://www.mylgp.org.nz
