Cyber safety and security for elderly and teens
The project "Cyber Safety and Security for Elderly and Teens" aims to increase awareness and competence of teens and elderly about cyber security, to be protected from the potential Internet threats they face in their daily lives. Implementing this project increases the competence of the elderly and teens for safe use of the Internet. For more information on project activities for seniors and teens you can find information below.
Analysis of best practices
Our team worked on Analysis of best practices, school curricula on cyber security for elderly and teens. The best practices for the module – training for the elderly and online game for teenagers for cyber security were taken from here, as results of the Cyber Safety and Security for the Elderly and Teens project, funded by the US Embassy in North Macedonia.

As part of the project, we have the educational game Cyber Lilo, which is designed to educate teens on cyber security. In order for our teens to master these topics more easily and use the Cyber Lilo app, we have chosen the approach for their teachers to mentor and support them in the learning process through play.
In April we organized an online training attended by teachers, the game was introduced to them and they were trained to mentor the topic of cyber security among teenagers through gamification.
