Preparing knowledge foundation from early years for creative critical thinkers by making informed choices to build positive digital footprints.
It aims to reach out to children, youth, parents, teachers, educators, social workers as well as industry, decision makers and government to encourage everyone to play a role in building happier spaces on internet.
“By celebrating the positive power of internet, the slogan “Happier and Safer Internet for all” encourages everyone to join the movement, participate, and thrive online by bringing people together.”
Given the speed at which technology moves and how slow the parents and schools have been able to react, a lot of them must play catch up now.
Why is Happier and Safer Internet for all Important?
The Challenges are surfacing faster in this uniquely 21st century set of the cyber world, so it is our collective responsibility to come together
1. Dependencies on the cyber world expose and elevate pernicious forms of cyber risks and leave children and adults to the uncharted territory of new and evolving digital media and infodemic.
2. Gap in the basic knowledge of protection and understanding of new communication posing risk to children and individuals related to digital wellbeing, cyberbullying, falling for fake, polarization besides many such and behavioural issues.
3. Limited access to cyber safety educational resources as the basic foundation for life skills and environment in schools and homes to strengthen the foundation to thrive in the new transformational age particularly evolved due to seismic shift during the pandemic.
4. Educators, caregivers and parents limit understanding of children’s and youth's online experiences and fail to recognise risks in shaping the future generations
When you join NexSchools community you support the mission to Make Happier & Safer Internet Expereinces and our work for making affordable education for all. We support NGOs during this time of COVID-19 pandemic to bring back children who are out of schools.
We are here to help. Need any help?
