Cyber Wellness Student Ambassador Conference 2012

DISM Students Promote Cyber Wellness and 
Positive Use of Social Media Among Peers
About 450 primary school, secondary school and junior college students have come together over two days from 20th Nov to 21st Nov to learn how they can be advocates for the positive use of social media among their peers at the Cyber Wellness Student Ambassador Conference 2012, held at Damai Secondary School.
The Cyber Wellness Student Ambassadors' Conference is a key annual event under the Cyber Wellness Student Ambassador Programme (CWSAP). The CWSAP is an initiative under BackPackLIVE!, a collaboration between the Ministry of Education (MOE), Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA) and Microsoft Singapore to inspire, explore and promote safe and responsible use of information and communications technology among students.
The theme for this year’s conference is "Be the change". It focuses on how student ambassadors can take the lead in helping their peers use social media positively and responsibly. 
Student leaders studying Diploma in Infocomm Security Management from Singapore Polytechnic have been actively involved in organizing and shaping the programme.

Some forty SP students facilitated workshops to deepen the student ambassadors' understanding of the impact of social media and practical tips that they can employ to help themselves or their friends tackle potential social media issues.
