Creating a Safer Online Environment

With Gen Z Filipinos spending an average of seven hours on digital media daily and with almost six hours using social media platforms, the Internet now has a prominent role in their lives. They go online for schoolwork or to partake in online gaming and social media platforms, but these young digital natives are exposed to a myriad of issues such as identity-theft and cyberbullying.


To educate the youth on digital citizenship and the responsible use of technology, Globe Telecom joined forces with Optus, Singtel, and Facebook in launching the Digital Thumbprint Program (DTP).


Co-designed by the Karrikins Group, DTP is a series of workshops patterned after the Optus Digital Thumbprint in-school program in Australia. Each module was designed to increase students’ knowledge of digital citizenship and cybersafety 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.

Students with Access to the Program

Every session was memorable for me, especially Digital Insight. I've learned many things from this topic, like how social media sites make money from our information. I've also realized how important it is to keep my account secure and private, and I hope that many have also learned from this.
