Globe has developed educational materials in order to guide educators and students while learning during the new normal. They have come up with eModules on responsible online behavior.

Having eModules on Responsible Online Behavior

Globe Telecom recognizes the importance of keeping students safe from online risks while learning and having fun. That is why they have launched the first of a series of eModules on responsible online behavior. It is designed to promote proper online conduct among the young people of today.

The Digital Insight eModules tackle the internet landscape in the Philippines while underlining imminent threats and risks. These web-based dangers include cyberattacks and identity theft that our children are exposed to. And we need to protect them against these virtual but very real threats.

Globe’s Digital Thumbprint Program

The eModules on responsible online behavior are an offshoot of Globe’s Digital Thumbprint Program (DTP) workshops from 2016. These workshops were aimed to educate students on digital citizenship and the responsible use of technology.

DTP was eventually integrated by the Department of Education (DepEd) in the K-12 curriculum. It helped to bolster DepEd’s existing modules around digital literacy.

~ Many kids have access to gadgets and the internet these days. We have to keep them safe from the influence of the world even while staying inside the home. ~

With the current pandemic discouraging face-to-face classes, Globe saw the need to convert the DTP workshop modules. These are now bite-sized instructional materials that are easily accessible online to reach more people.

Furthermore, they have enriched the DTP content to make it more applicable under the new normal.

A Collaboration

The eModules were developed in partnership with DepEd, Plan International Philippines, and UNICEF’s SaferKidsPH.

“As young people spend more time online, they are more vulnerable to online threats. These include online abuse, exploitation, and identity theft. As an enabler of the #OneDigitalNation, we help the youth and online netizens increase awareness of online threats. This will make their online experience safe and secure.” This was stated by Yoly Crisanto, Globe Chief Sustainability Officer and SVP for Corporate Communications.

She adds that, “educating our netizens is especially crucial at this time when Filipinos are expected to increase internet usage. We hope to see more responsible digital citizens.”

The Lessons Covered by the eModules on Responsible Online Behavior

There are currently five lessons under the Digital Insight eModule. These are:

  1. internet addiction
  2. digital safety
  3. anti-piracy
  4. creating more secure accounts
  5. understanding terms and conditions
  6. cyberbullying

Globe also converted the lessons into a Virtual Reality video to give students a more immersive learning experience.

Additional Learning Materials

The eModules on responsible online behavior may also be used by teachers as part of the values education subject.

Meanwhile, parents can use the material to better understand the World Wide Web (www). This should enable them to guide their children in identifying, addressing, and avoiding the dangers in the virtual world.

More eModules with different lessons will be released in the coming weeks.
