e-Guardian v.2 - for Educators

 e-Guardian v.2 is endorsed partner programme designed for to pedagogues of educational institutions, who seek to safely use their computers and the Internet, to teach their students, and to protect them from the Internet threats.

e-Guardian v.2 was created during the EU Leonardo da Vinci Transfer of Innovation project e-GUARDIAN ("Development and certification of skills for European Educators focused on Safe ICT and Cyber threat prevention").

Teachers, in particular, should know about the potential threats on the Internet and the consequences that may arise out of unsafe Internet use. They should know how to manage digital data in a safe manner and how to recover lost data. They should focus on the safe use of the Internet resources, learn about safety and privacy on the Internet and they should be able to use e-services safely. It was appropriate to take action, because there is lack of knowledge on Internet safety and there are no relevant Internet safety training standards nor syllabuses in national education systems.
