Digital Citizenship in New Zealand Schools


The 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.
