Safe use of Information and Communication Technologies 

Learning is a social activity. It happens when people interact 
with other people and their ideas, knowledge andperspectives. ICTs provide children and students with new and engaging ways to learn. ICTs expand social and knowledge networks so that children and students access current 
information, interact with experts and participate in peer teaching and learning. Using ICTs they can publish their learning, as evidence of achievement or to invite feedback for improvement.
It is important to both protect and teach children, students and adults, while they learn to use ICTs and become responsible digital citizens. This includes adults thinking ahead of new risks and children and students learn how to avoid exposure to inappropriate material or activities, and protecting themselves when they are online. They need to learn how to use ICTs, including mobile technologies and social networking sites, in responsible and ethical ways. In addition, they need to feel confident about alerting the adults in their lives when they are feeling unsafe, threatened, bullied or exposed to inappropriate events. In response, it is important adults take appropriate actions to protect the child or young person.
