KnowBe4 celebrated Safer Internet Day by launching new learning module for students 


This year, Safer Internet Day took place on the 6th of February and KnowBe4 were on hand to make it a special one for children, as they launched new learning modules for students.

This day, celebrated annually, focuses on a particular issue or theme that speaks to young people’s online experiences and the theme for 2024 was ‘Inspiring change? Making a difference, managing influence and navigating change online’.

It aims to cover themes such as young people’s perspective on new and emerging technology, using the internet to make change for the better, the changes young people want to see online and the things that can influence and change the way young people think, feel and act online and offline. 

Today’s younger generation has always lived with the internet at their fingertips, and as Artificial Intelligence (AI) increasingly weaves into the fabric of their daily routines, many remain unaware of the potential dangers.

These are only two of the many reasons KnowBe4 developed its Children’s Interactive Cybersecurity Activity Kit, a fun and interactive cybersecurity kit helping parents, guardians, and educators teach children crucial internet safety and security skills. 

KnowBe4 has used Synthesia’s AI video platform to create a new module for its Kit this week. AI Safety for Students is a video-based lesson aimed at students in grades three to eight who unknowingly use AI and do not understand the risks associated. In this module, students will gain an understanding of what AI is and will be given the knowledge and skills to navigate the digital world safely while benefiting from AI’s capabilities for learning and entertainment. 

The new module launched in several languages including English, Spanish, French, German, and Japanese. 

“Our duty as a security organisation is to pass on our knowledge in a way that is both enjoyable and interesting, helping parents, guardians, educators, and children to learn more about being safe online. Our latest module, our first aimed at helping students, tackles AI – today’s most significant tech trend – that a lot of children use without knowing the potential dangers,” explained John Just, chief learning officer at KnowBe4. “AI Safety for Students does not just point out what can go wrong, but it also shows them how to use AI in a safe way. We look forward to introducing more content in the future to help children more safely navigate the online world.”
