The teaching material "Moving with Confidence in the Digital World" is designed and realised by university teachers and staff from the Media Education and Digital Learning departments of the Zurich University of Teacher Education PHZH in cooperation with the data protection officer of the Canton of Zurich.
Teaching materials are being developed for cycles 1-3 of the primary school, which focus on the protection of privacy and allow for a playful, age-appropriate teaching of the content.
Privacy is important at any age. That is why our teaching material is based on basic knowledge that children acquire from kindergarten age onwards. While cycle 1 deals with the basic understanding of privacy and the recognition of personal data, cycles 2 and 3 focus on the media-competent use of digital tools and platforms.
Each edition of the teaching material is available in different formats for different use scenarios and technical requirements:
a web version that can be used in any modern browser,
an ePUB3 e-book version that can be downloaded and read with compatible e-book apps (only cycle 1),
an e-book version in the beook app.
The teaching material is designed to be used by teachers in different settings, regardless of the size of their class and the level of the pupils. Many materials can be used digitally or printed and in-depth information allows teachers to explore topics individually.
In the spring of 2019 "Secrets are allowed" was published for cycle 1. The teaching material was awarded the "Global Privacy and Data Protection Award".
