Teachers, students and parents are increasingly using digital technologies to teach, learn and communicate and hence they are challenging the traditional concept of a school. While advances in technology have created opportunities to engage students in the classroom in new and exciting ways, they also present an opportunity to be both intentionally and unintentionally misused. Hence, it becomes the responsibility of the teacher to educate children and young people and address the underlying ethics (values) and responsible behaviors expected of them online and off. Thus it is needed for the Teacher Education institutes to take a holistic approach towards cyber safety education commonly known as ethics in using ICT.
The aim of this workshop is to spread awareness about ‘Ethics in using ICT’ and build strategies and resources to support all students’ well-being. The workshop is scheduled for 10th October 2017.
