  • embrace individual self-paced learning,
  • access homework and lessons posted by teachers and
  • learn anytime, anywhere and with parental participation.  
 

Cyber Wellness


Cyber Wellness refers to the positive well-being of Internet users. It involves an understanding of the risks of harmful online behaviours, an awareness of how to protect oneself and other Internet users from such behaviours.
 
MOE uses the Sense-Think-Act framework to develop the child’s instinct to protect and empower him to take responsibility for his own well-being in cyberspace. The two principles, ‘Respect for Self and Others’ and ‘Safe and Responsible Use’ when adhered to will anchor your child’s well-being in cyberspace as they will then be able to make careful and well-considered decisions.


There are 7 key Cyberwellness topics. They are: 


  • Netiquette
  • Dangers of Cyber Contacts
  • Handling Inappropriate Content
  • Copyright
  • Cyberbullying
  • Computer Security
  • Gaming and Internet Addiction 
 

C-Quest - A Mobile App Game to Promote Conversations About Cyber Wellness Between Parents and Children


 

Parents can now download a new mobile game app, C-Quest, and have conversations on cyber wellness with their children. Developed by the Ministry of Education and targeted at parents with children aged 10 to 14, C-Quest is specially designed to facilitate meaningful parent-child conversations on their online experiences. Through the game, students will also learn to be safe, respectful, and responsible users of Information and Communication Technology (ICT).

 

C-Quest, in facilitating conversation between parents and their children, complements the Cyber Wellness curriculum in schools, where cyber wellness based on the principles of “Respect for Self and Others” and “Safe and Responsible Use” of technology are taught through Citizenship and Character Education (CCE) to reinforce the positive values and social emotional competencies needed for our students to navigate the cyber space skilfully and safely.

 

Parents can also look out for cyber wellness tips posted on  MOE’s Cyber Wellness Portal  and the  MOE Parents in Education portal.
