Digital Citizenship & Cyber Wellness Olympiad (DCCWO) is one of the awareness campaigns that Wizfinity organises and technically manages for our partner Learning Links Foundation. DCCWO was launched in April 2017 and is currently open for participation. This is an awareness campaign which aims at making each member of the society learn to stay safe online which is a global concern today with increasing dependency on web at every level of society. The program emerged from the fact that technology today is an accepted mode of link for any task that we want to execute and gadgets like smart phones or wrist watches have made it even easier to co-relate with technology… we have no choice but to accept this advent. As a logical next step then is our endeavour to make every child, every educator and every community member aware on how to be safe on-line
The Olympiad has well researched learning content created by team of experts and is based on globally published 9 elements of Digital citizenship. The content is part of the Olympiad and is available on-line for every participant to use as learning & reference material before taking the final Olympiad test online.
