Recognizing the importance of keeping students safe from online risks while learning and having fun, Globe has launched the first of a series of eModules designed to promote proper online behavior among the youth.

The Digital Insight eModules tackle the internet landscape in the Philippines while underlining imminent threats and risks such as cyberattacks and identity theft that digital technology users are exposed to and how the youth can be protected against them.

The eModules are an offshoot of Globe’s Digital Thumbprint Program (DTP) workshops launched in 2016 to educate students on digital citizenship and responsible use of technology. DTP was eventually integrated by the Department of Education (DepEd) in the K-12 curriculum to bolster DepEd’s existing modules around digital literacy.

With the current pandemic discouraging face-to-face interactions in schools, Globe saw the need to convert the traditional DTP workshop modules into bite-sized instructional materials that are easily accessible online to reach more educators, parents and students, as well as further enrich the DTP content to make it more applicable under the new normal. The eModules are being created in partnership with DepEd, Plan International Philippines, and UNICEF’s SaferKidsPH.

“As young people spend more time online, they are now more vulnerable to online threats which include online abuse, exploitation and identity theft. As an enabler of the #OneDigitalNation, we help the youth and online netizens increase awareness on online threats to make their online experience safe and secure. Educating our netizens is especially crucial at this time when Filipinos are expected to increase their internet usage, we hope to see more responsible digital citizens,” said Yoly Crisanto, Globe Chief Sustainability Officer and SVP for Corporate Communications.

There are currently five lessons under the Digital Insight eModule – internet addiction, digital safety, anti-piracy, creating more secure accounts and understanding terms and conditions, and cyberbullying.

The lessons are presented through short 3-5 minute shareable videos that are easy for the youth to understand on their own. They are available at Globe DTP and the DepEd Commons websites as well as the Globe Bridging Communities Facebook Page. Globe also converted the lessons into one Virtual Reality video to give students a more immersive learning experience.

The eModules may also be used by teachers as part of the values education subject, or by parents, to enable them to guide their children in identifying, addressing, and avoiding the dangers present in the digital space. Succeeding eModules will be released in the coming weeks.

Globe continues to help the education sector through connectivity and learning tools and materials. The company is committed to supporting 10 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals including UNSDG No. 4 on Quality Education and UNSDG No. 17 on Partnerships for the Goals.
