2. Theme for the 2021 Challenge
The theme for this year’s challenge is “Fake News: Spot It, Evaluate It, Remove It!”
Through this Challenge, we hope to achieve the following objectives:
(a) To reach out to parents with the voices of children and youths, and
(b) To empower youth advocates and impart Cyber Wellness principles and values.
3. Phases in the Enrichment Module
Schools are to plan for a one-hour time slot to go through the package in their own school (e.g. the lesson package may be carried out as a Post-Midyear/Year-End Exam Activity).
Schools will access the lesson package on a webpage and go through the lesson package beforehand. Schools will conduct the one-hour lesson package on their own. There will be materials for dissemination which schools may choose to print or distribute digitally.
Conduct of Lesson Package
- The teacher will access the web page and conduct the one-hour lesson package in a pre-determined format by the school.
- Suggested sequence of NCAC activities, using the lesson package:
|Online experiential learning activity

|Set up a collaborative Padlet to contribute tips and ideas to find the best way forward for the cyber wellness issue
Submission of Evidence
