In Issue 36 journalist Jocelyn de Kwant compiles eight things that children (and adults) can learn to be strong in the digital world.
- Digital identity: How do you create an identity with integrity offline and online, and how do you use it?
- Digital use: How do you manage your screen time, maintain digital health? How do you not lose yourself in social media, and how do you keep your balance between offline and online?
- Digital safety: Understand the cyber risks; cyberbullying and being bullied. But also, how do you talk to each other with respect and empathy?
- Digital security: How do you protect your data and how do you handle passwords?
- Digital emotional intelligence: Empathy, how do you deal with your own feelings and those of others when you do not see each other in real life?
- Digital literacy: Critical thinking, how do you distinguish fake news from real news; how can you tell who you can trust and who not to?
- Digital communication: What trail are you leaving online (digital footprints) and how can that affect your real life?
- Digital rights: What does privacy mean, what are your rights and how do you protect them?
- Read Jocelyn’s complete article on the necessary digital skills of the future in Issue 36.
