HONG KONG Safer Internet Day Committee
Safer Internet Day Hong Kong - Let’s create a better internet together
On March 15, a carnival and presentation programme will be held at Tsing Yi Park echoing the theme of Safer Internet. It is a platform for community members in different age group to exchange their experience and views over the use of Internet.
WebOrganic is supporting different school talks on positive use of the Internet throughout the year. A school talk for 700 secondary school students was conducted in January 2014 by WebOrganic's CEO, Mr. Erwin Huang ( http://www.linkedin.com/in/erwinhuang ), on his career success through the Internet and how he contributes back to the society through mobile technology. Erwin’s work in the “Safety Bell” ( https://www.schsa.org.hk/tc/home/index.html ) offers 24-hour personal caring and emergency assistance services to the elderly, which is an award-winning showcase in using mobile technology to help people in need. WebOrganic used YouTube Livecast feature to broadcast such talk world-wide in real-time.
WebOrganic also offers self-pace online interactive learning courses to primary and secondary school students and their parents. Course topics include “Internet addiction”, “Cyber bullying”, “Compensated dating”, “Inappropriate content, cybercrime and intellectual property”, “Privacy, personal data, identity, computer safety and security”, “Social network”, etc. By different multimedia and interactive resources, WebOrganic endeavors to make the Internet a better place for students and parents altogether.
Meanwhile, a number of District Cyber Centres have been organising safer internet training for housewives and elderly citizen in the community. Obviously, they have a different online experience and security measure to the teenagers.
