Novel Teaching Learning and Evaluation Activities for Imbibing the Concepts of Cyber Security as Perennial Thought-Process in the Learners' Digital Life


The use of Internet by students is growing exponentially every year. This younger generation learns technology quickly, but is ignorant about ensuring the safety by reading disclaimers or licenses before agreeing to them. Also they are more social online than in real world, hence they do not hesitate in sharing their life online which they probably won't share in person. These all things can result in some irreversible loss, if misused by cyber criminals. Thus it has become very necessary to make this young generation aware about security aspects of the digital world i.e cyber security. The objective was not just to make them aware of all the dangers present out there, but also to inculcate the safety habits in their day to day digital life. This could be only done by having complete interactive classes, rather than conventional teaching. Hence planning and execution of different teaching as well as evaluation methods were done, wherein the student�s active participation was encouraged. The tasks included preparation of unique cyber-crime diary, Dramatization/Presentation, Video Creation, poster presentation. The Paper focuses on all Teaching-Learning techniques as well as evaluation methodologies used for creating awareness among the current generation about safe journey into their digital life. The paper also discusses the feedback received from students regarding the techniques and efforts used for enriching their knowledge about cyber security.
