Orientation and Teachers’ training programme on ‘Digital Citizenship’ {Skill Module for Middle school}

Digital Citizenship is an increasingly critical skill for students. In today’s world is that students are increasingly exposed to online technology at a young age. After the experience of the past two years, it can safely be said that the digital world is here to stay. Teachers across India recognize that their students require instruction to help them learn to safely navigate the online world. We need to empower our youth to become responsible & safe digital citizens who make the right decisions online and help them use technology in a positive way.

CBSE has launched a Skill Module for students of Classes VI-VIII on ‘Digital Citizenship’.

This 3-level curriculum relies on experiential and activity-based learning where students will apply concepts and theory to real world scenarios through case studies, reflections, and activities. The course will cover important aspects for students like digital etiquette, cybersecurity, cyber bullying, information literacy, using the internet for social good and the future of our digital world with topics such as AI, AR/VR and the Metaverse.

The curriculum has been designed to ensure that teachers of all subjects and grades can easily understand and train their students to become responsible digital citizens. Teachers will be provided with a ‘Teachers’ Handbook’ and ‘Classroom Material’ to make the facilitation process easy.

A virtual orientation session is also being organized for Principals and teachers of all CBSE affiliated schools, to understand more about the subject on 14th June 2022 as per the following details:
