Globe, Facebook launch “Digital Discernment” module to promote responsible digital citizenship

Globe Telecom and Facebook recently launched a new “Digital Discernment” workshop, coinciding with Safer Internet Day on February 6, 2018. More than 100 public school students and teachers from Manila participated in the workshop, which included topics to teach people how to think critically online, and identify credible information from questionable information. Content includes practical tips on how to verify and examine online sources, and identify facts from opinions.

The workshop promotes responsible digital citizenship among teachers and students in public and private schools across the country under the “Digital Thumbprint Program” or DTP. The workshop was led by Chelle Obligacion-Gray, Globe Director for Citizenship (2nd from left), Clair Deevy Facebook Head of Community Affairs Asia Pacific (3rd from left), Miguel Bermundo Globe Citizenship Manager (3rd from right), module facilitator Chris Kuzhuppilly (extreme left), along with DepEd representatives.

In addition to the workshop’s focus on critical thinking and discernment skills, the “Digital Discernment” initiative also emphasized the importance of online etiquette and respectful communication. Participants were encouraged to engage in positive online interactions, promoting a safer and more inclusive digital environment. The workshop provided insights into recognizing and combatting cyberbullying, as well as strategies for reporting harmful online behavior.

By addressing these issues, Globe Telecom and Facebook aim to not only equip students and teachers with the tools to navigate the digital world effectively but also foster a more responsible and empathetic online community. This collaborative effort underscores the commitment of both organizations to promote a safer and more informed digital landscape for all.
