Information about the project
AQDAR Cyber C3
The exponential rise of internet use in the UAE has given the country unprecedented access to a world of information and ideas. Whilst Government and individual institutions’ firewalls offer some protection against the threat posed by sites and social media platforms that are ideologically and culturally inappropriate, the rapidly evolving nature of the internet makes it essential that all members of the UAE community become well-informed digital citizens. Cyber C3 provides a fully integrated program of information, awareness and understanding for students in grades K-12 and in Higher Education, which empowers them as responsible and thoughtful users of the internet.
National implementation: United Arab Emirates
Ongoing from 02/09/2012 to 31/08/2020
Ministry of Education Abu Dhabi Education Council (ADEC) Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA)
