Cybersense

 

 

Cyberbullying is quickly becoming one of society’s serious problems. People often post and share intimate, private details of their life on the internet. These are some of the many instances that makes individuals vulnerable to theft, stalking and cyber bullying. With an estimated one in three of all internet users being below the age of eighteen, children and young people are facing increased safety risks when going online. In Belize cyber security has become an important issue and cyber bullying is a growing phenomenon so much so that the Ministry of Education is now moving to develop a manual to prevent the crime within schools.

 

Things to consider when developing your design/video:

Relevance: how relevant is the poster/video in increasing awareness of cyber sense or helping others to understand how they can help someone who is being cyberbullied?

Presentation and design: how interesting is the design of the poster & video? Does it stand-out? Does it suit the targeted audience?

Story-telling: does the poster design & video have a clear message?

Originality: how original is the poster & video?
