7. Engaging the Students

Objectives
To promote the positive well being of students when they use or interact in the Internet. This involves understanding the risks of harmful online behaviour, have the awareness of how to protect oneself from such behaviours. 

Through this raised awareness and understanding, students reflect on their practices and learn to cultivate good life-long working habits.
