Cybersmart Challenge: There are three modules, which can be used as standalone lessons or as a series. When used as a series, they foster a deeper understanding of online safety.
Select a module, show the students the video, and use the relevant lesson plan to facilitate activities and discussion. Students can be presented with a certificate at the end of the session.
