Title: Towards Cyber Safety Education in Primary Schools in Africa
Author(s): Sune von Solms, Rossouw von Solms
Keywords: Cyber safety, cyber security, cyber awareness, cyber education
Abstract: Cyber safety has become critically important to all who are active in cyber space. In most African countries no coordinated activities in this regard are taking place, even though many children are already active on cyber space. This paper presents an introductory, but usable, guide to empower primary school teachers, specifically in Africa, to impart the basic principles of cyber safety to their learners. A set of very usable, self-explanatory, publicly available online video cartoons were identified for use as resources by teachers in discussing and stimulate cyber safety principles to primary school learners.
