In 2017, the 'Cybersmart Teens' programme will be delivered to Year 7 and 8 learners. Students will work toward a 'Digital Driver's Licence'. This approach is designed to support students as they move from primary to secondary school online learning environments, and from children to young adults in the online world. Students can also earn demerit points if they struggle to manage the responsibilities of their licence level, with the opportunity to relearn the modules at the previous licence level, before moving up again. Senior students will also have Cybersmart learning opportunities, and will also participate in the licensing approach to support their online learning. This programme is under development during the 2017 year at Westland High.
