Cyber Wellness (CW) refers to the positive well-being of Internet users. It involves an understanding of online behaviour and awareness of how to protect oneself in cyberspace. The focus of CW is about helping students to become responsible digital learners. When navigating cyberspace, students should demonstrate respect for self and others and practise safe and responsible use. Students should also be a positive peer influence by harnessing technology for collaboration, learning and productivity, as well as advocating positive use of technology for the good of the community.
There are 7 key Cyberwellness topics which students are engaged in through school assembly programmes as well as within our school’s Montfortian Character and Citizenship (MCCE) curriculum. They are: • Netiquette
• Dangers of Cyber Contacts• Handling Inappropriate Content• Copyright• Cyberbullying• Computer Security• Gaming and Internet Addiction Parents can also look out for cyber wellness tips posted on MOE’s Cyber Wellness Portal.
The Ministry of Education has developed an app, C-Quest, which serves as a tool to encourage conversations between parents and their children on Cyber Wellness. Through the game, students will also learn to be safe, respectful, and responsible users of Information and Communication Technology (ICT).
C-Quest, in facilitating conversation between parents and their children, also complements the Cyber Wellness Curriculum taught in schools through Citizenship and Character Education (CCE). The CW Curriculum reinforces the positive values and social emotional competencies needed for our students to navigate the cyber space skilfully and safely.
