Today, online crime is a concern not just for parents and teachers, but schools also as it affects the social conditioning on a deeper level. To help students tackle the online bug, a Cyber Safety Workshop was organized for Grade 8 Students at Zebar School for Children. It was an initiative of Middle Section Supervisor- Ms. Pankhuri Agarwal to spread awareness particularly amongst the teenagers in order to reduce the Cyber Crime Cases. The workshop was proportionately banked upon four segments namely- avoiding online scams, social media safety, Cyber Bullying , Strengthening Privacy settings. Ms. Agarwal highlighted the need for children to keep in touch with their parents about the details of their accounts on Facebook, Whatsapp etc. Students who attended the workshop were urged to make optimum use of what they had acquired and spread their skills and knowledge among other children. Zebar School made an effort to emphasise the constructive relationship children can have with technology and upskill students in understanding the importance of and ways to implement safe online practices.
