To create awareness amongst the pupils of the 21st century, about the hazards of the virtual world, a workshop was organized by DME Management School at Kendriya Vidyalay, AGCR, New Delhi on 22nd November 2019. Dr. Swati Jain, Ms. Parul Grover, and Ms. Monika Kadam visited the school and addressed 100 students of class 9th, 125 students of 11th and 75 students of class 12th.
The entire workshop was conducted interactively, as a lot of pertinent questions were raised, which were answered in great detail. The focus of the session was to create awareness about the usage of networking devices, which have become a part and parcel of everyone’s life. An individual who is unaware of the uses of the cyber world is vulnerable to the risks it poses. The entire session was meticulously designed and executed; it covered a wide range of issues from morphing to online predators.
Students were enlightened about possible threats of e-frauds, online banking frauds, hacking, phishing, cyber defamation, cyberbullying, stalking, child pornography, online human trafficking, etc. Students were also briefed about keeping passwords safe, avoiding cyber bullying, data thefts, threats of fake profiles and defamatory posts. Also, it pointed out that the inappropriate use of the Internet is a major issue with the school and college-going students. Unknowingly students and children get trapped in various cyber-related crimes. Right orientation and proper parental awareness can restrict the problem to some extent.
This workshop acted as an eye-opener for everyone who attended it. In fact, Mr. Rakshit Tandon’s guidance and advice, properly followed, could have a far-reaching and favourable impact with regard to the cyber safety of our society.
