Report on Cyber Safety Project
In today’s techno world, it has become essential for each one of us to be aware of the Virtual World around us and to safely and securely surf the internet. New Era Public School, Mayapuri, is always working at its best to give a safe environment to its students. Keeping this in mind, w had conducted a two months project on the topic “Cyber Security”.
As we all are aware that Cyber Security is one of the major concerns of today. In this tech-world, one must be careful because his/her private data is not safe anywhere. The privacy and the reputation of an individual is at stake today because of a lot of anti cyber activities going on. Through our project “Cyber Security: The Need of the hour”, we are working at our best to sensitize our society including the students, parents and teachers to deal with this issue as it is a major alarm today.
This project started in November 2019 and continued till December 2019. We have collaborated this project with our partner schools : Shubhakamana Academy, Kathmandu, Nepal, Millsberry School, Nepal and Airdale Junior School, United Kingdom. A lot of activities were conducted during this project. We have also exchanged all our activities and students’ feedback with our partner schools. We started with the Cyber Week in November, during which a lot of inter house and inter lass competitions were held. Some of them included Poster Making, Slogan Writing, Website Designing , Debates, Article Writing and Cartoon Making for classes VI-XII. The best posters, slogans, articles and debate scripts were sent to the partner schools.
An inter school App Designing event “AppTeh” was also conducted in which the students of various schools of Delhi , NCR had participated. They had designed apps based on Cyber Safety. These apps also included the cyber policies followed in their schools. The best app was from Lancer’s Convent Senior Sec. School, Prashant Vihar.
The documentary and short videos on “Cambridge Analytia” were shown to the students and feedback was taken from them. We had sent these videos to partner schools and their feedback was recorded. Our students had made a lot of presentations on cyber crimes in India, cyber Laws and various organizations that have helped in eradiating this issue and solving people’s problems. These presentations were sent to the partner schools. We had organized video conferences with our partner schools in which the students had discussed about various cyber issues and the ways we an control them. This has helped them to compare the cyber crime rates in the countries being studied and collaborated. Cyber Safety workshops were conducted for students and parents to sensitize them of this issue and all the necessary precautions to be taken while online.
This complete project was a collaborative one and all the feedbacks and reports were sent to partner schools as well. This has helped our students understand the issue in a better and global way.
