To help students and teachers in the Philippines expand their online knowledge, the site provides information aimed at the youth, as well as quizzes and activities, and downloadable notes for teachers.

The site covers various topics from cyberbullying, fake news and misinformation, to knowing the dangers of risky behavior on the internet.

Microsoft said during the launch in late September 2021 that students and teachers in the Philippines can use the new resource to help facilitate in-class conversations about the following essential digital safety topics:

  • Protecting your data and identity
  • Putting a stop to cyberbullying
  • Wising up to risks, and
  • Being a good digital citizen
