DIMAPUR, JUN 18 (NPN) | Publish Date: 6/18/2020 1:40:20 PM IST

State department of school education (DoSE) has directed the heads of institutions of all schools (both government and private) functioning within Nagaland to take necessary steps to make children and parents aware about the safe use of internet and online threats by the means of SMS, online teaching and other means, which were being used to reach out to children. 

The department has noted that with the introduction of online teaching by different institutions in the light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, children spend more time on the internet, often unsupervised and are vulnerable to being targeted online by unwanted elements. The department said there were reports about possibility of online exploitation of children and increase in activity related to Child Sexual Abuse Material (CSAM).
In a public notice, principal director school education, Shanavas C, informed that IEC materials on safe online learning were available in the official website of the department https://education.nagaland.gov.in for necessary action.
Further, taking note of a few schools sharing personal information of students such as Aadhaar Number in school WhatsApp groups in violation of provisions of the IT Act, 2000, DoSE has, therefore, advised all responsible to be cautious in this regard so that the interests of students were not jeopardized.
