As per the CBSE brochure, to further their commitment towards digital inclusion and digital empowerment, CBSE and Facebook have partnered to launch curriculum and related training in Augmented Reality, Digital Safety & Online Well-Being and introduce Instagram Toolkit for Teens.
With Facebook, there will be an online programme for augmented reality while with Instagram, workshops on screentime spent on this photo-sharing platform will be conducted, teaching students and teachers how to stay safe on social media.
The Centre for Social Research (CSR) will be leading the digital training workshop for students to understand their digital identity and how they can become responsible digital users.
Instagram’s Guide for Building Healthy Digital Habits has been developed in collaboration with The Jed Foundation (JED) and YLAC (Young Leaders for Active Citizenship). It’s a basic guide to understand the socio-emotional space young people operate in, on any social media platform.
"We will explore the essentials of how to communicate responsibly online, how to identify and respond to threats and harassment, and the tools with which they can empower themselves to stay safe and secure online," as per the CBSE brochure.
