Safer internet in schools! The Austrian approach towards bringing safer internet topics into the classroom

Barbara Buchegger, Pedagogical Manager,

There are currently no plans in the Austrian educational system to include any special curriculum or subjects on topics such as online-security, responsible online behaviour or copyright, and so there is no guarantee that the students will encounter such topics during their time at school. introduced several measures in order to help change things, e.g. free educational material for teachers, training sessions in schools (especially “ – Vaccination”), as well as teacher and head-teacher training sessions. Through the implementation of such measures, a total of 14,000 students and teachers were reached in 2013 and 2014 alone.

This lecture will demonstrate the Austrian approach and several easy-to-go classroom activities for different age groups.
