Learners sometimes tend to use the internet to obtain inappropriate information such as pornography and very erotic movies. To avoid this some measures can be employed to curb this.
Firstly, teachers and parents can install mature content filtering software. This software should be installed not only on the computers but also on the phones learners use (Cilliers and 2020). It automatically omits any wrong content such as pornography which may be accessed by learners on the internet.
Secondly, parents and teachers should always monitor the browsing apps the learners use to navigate through the internet. Through this, it won’t give them chance to access nudity and other inappropriate information.
Thirdly, learners should only play the online game ratings which are appropriate for their age (Chisago et Al 2020). This will avoid imitation of characters who are wrong at their age.
Fourthly one should not allow learners to contact activities such as online shopping without supervision by a guardian or a parent. This may give them a chance to access the wrong information.
Lastly, learners should be educated to keep private information private. This may include their real names, school, residential places, and passwords (Margolis and 2020). This is to avoid strangers from getting into their accounts and start sending them inappropriate videos, messages, and pictures.
