ICSE Association to hold workshop in schools to raise awareness against the 'Blue Whale' challenge
A workshop will be organised by the Association of ICSE schools in West Bengal for all its member schools in the city. This will be done in order to spread awareness among students about the misuse of social media and the risks associated with games like the 'Blue Whale Challenge' and similar ones. The association has planned to involve over 250 schools across West Bengal. The workshop will take place by September 2017 where two student leaders from class 9 and 10 and one teacher from each school will participate and speak on the 'abuse and misuse of social media' and online games like 'Blue Whale Challenge'.
The student leaders in their respective classes will interact with cyber experts and resource persons about the dangers inherent in addiction to the social media, how it affects their studies, personal lives and how online games like 'Blue Whale Challenge' can be fatal. The student leaders will then communicate the expert advice to their classmates. The workshop would also aim to aware students about too much addiction to smart phones which may distract students from other curriculur and extra-curriculur activities.
