At Panyarat High School we actively promote and encourage the safe and responsible use of digital devices when our students are online through education about Digital Citizenship. To reinforce our ethos, our students enjoyed a lecture from the Cyber Police about Digital Citizenship with particular emphasis on cyber-bullying.
Cyber-bullying involves sending, posting, or sharing negative, harmful, false, or mean content about someone else online. It can occur through SMS, Text, and apps, or online in social media, and where people can view, participate in, or share content.
The Cyber Police spoke to our students about things to be aware of with regards to cyber-bullying. They explained what is right and wrong when posting on social media platforms such as Facebook, Line, or Instagram and which offenses are considered computer crimes. They also informed our students about precautions for spreading information received from posts or when sharing to others, and how to collect preliminary evidence when a wrongful action has occurred. The lecture was very successful and has achieved its purpose of helping our students lead a safer digital life.
