In an effort to bring the #DQEveryChild movement to South Africa, the DQ Institute collaborated with Digitelligence and Symphonia’s Partners for Possibility to spread cyber awareness among students, teachers, and business leaders.
Greg Gatherer of Digitelligence worked to introduce the DQ World platform to students and schools directly through workshops, in addition to promoting the platform and its benefits on his website.
Along with his efforts, Dr Robyn Whittaker of Partners for Possibility reached out to the top NGO’s network of schools to offer them the opportunity to take part in the 2018 DQ World programme by participating in the 2017 DQ Study.
Through their participation in the study, these schools will be able to understand their students’ digital use habits and their current levels of cyber-risk exposure. Schools that had over 100 student respondents have received a DQ Screen Time Report and will be able to use this knowledge to build and develop their own pedagogies for digital citizenship education to complement the DQ World programme.
