GLOBE DIGITAL THUMBPRINT PROGRAM

How strong and secure is your online password?

 

If you’re not sure if your internet online password is not strong, safe, and secure, hook on this site first before you proceed below.

For many, and that include us, think that our choice passwords are already strong and safe. But wait until you try and test it on the site we just gave you.

High school students of Manila Science High School know very much than we do. At their tender age, they knew the danger that lurks beneath the world wide web and that there is someone who’s out to steal their online information and use it without them knowing at all.

Thanks to Globe for initiating the Globe Digital Thumprint Program, a school-based educational program for high school students covering the understanding of online connectivity and the importance of responsible digital citizenship which aims to promote the truth and benefits of a wonderful digital national for the Philippines through awareness and education of online security, etiquette, empowerment and positive digital citizenship for all.

According to DTP report, these are the most common used passwords.

And to have a strong password, one must follow these suggestions.

Globe started the pilot for DTP last January in Sico 1.0 National High School in Batangas, and Dasmarinas East Nation High School, covering 2000 students in the area.

Globe’s DTP basically aims to educate these kids about the good and the bad side of the internet and how they’ll learn from it and become responsible netizens at their young age.

A 2-day program was held at Manila Science High School last July 13 & 14 and ran 3 sessions per participating groups.

Importance of DTP

The youth are greatly represented in the online community. It is imperative that the next generation learns the importance of online health safety, and digital citizenship so they can take full advantage of the technology that surround them.

In efforts to advocate a wonderful digital nation, Globe has committed to air in the development of responsible, proactive, young netizens now and in the future for themselves and for the Philippines.

Origins

Co-designed by the Karrikins Group, DTP is composed of a series of workshops patterned after the Optus DTP in-school program where it has already reached 81,000 high school students across Australia. Globe also aims to do the same by educating as many Filipino youth on digital citizenship in view of a recent Philippine National Police report that half of the internet users are adolescents aged 17 years old and below.

Workshop Content

DTP offers three exciting modules for students. Each module is designed to increase students’ knowledge of digital citizenship and cyber safety by taking a critical look at their online behavior and helping them develop insights into the influences of the online world and the choices they are making.

· The Digital Insight workshop provides activities to help students discern proper online behavior,
· Digital Impact tackles issues on technology’s impact on students’ social activities
· Digital Ambition equips them with skills on how to use technology to achieve life goals.
