Digital Citizenship Programme
As students use the learning device extensively to leverage available online resources to promote and deepen their learning in the classroom, it is important that they demonstrate respect for self and others through their social interactions in the cyber-environment.
The Digital Citizenship Programme complements the academic programmes in SST’s technology-enabled environment. This programme aims to equip students with the knowledge and skills to navigate and act safely and responsibly in the cyberspace. They will learn how to exhibit appropriate online behaviour that reflects the honesty, respect and consideration that one will use in face-to-face interaction. They will also learn to use appropriate platforms for their intended purposes and be constructive in their contribution to the cyberspace.
Topics that are explored in the programme include ethical and legal issues relating to handling inappropriate content, netiquette, respecting intellectual property, verifying information sources and managing security risks.
