CBSE releases cyber safety guide for students

From measures to deal with cyberbullying and stalking to digital rights, freedom and responsibilities, the CBSE has come up with a cyber safety manual for students from 9 to 12 to ensure the development of safe and healthy online habits among them. 

The manual has been prepared at a time when students have increased access to the digital world with classroom teaching suspended due to the COVID-19 included lockdown, and teaching and learning activities being conducted online. 

While the manual has covered cyber safety topics such as cyberbullying, including social exclusion, intimidation, defamation, emotional harassment, online sexual abuse, cyber radicalisation, online attack and frauds and online enticement, it also talks about nine elements of digital citizenship — digital access, literacy, communication, etiquette, health and wellbeing, rights, freedom and responsibility, security and law.
