CyberSafeTT.com is the brainchild of Daren Dhoray, our Lead Digital Anthropoligist who set out with the mission of educating primary and secondary school students, parents and teachers on the benefits as well as the current dangers of social media and the Internet safety impacting our children. What started off (September 2010) as sessions held primarily for incoming secondary school students who would now be getting their first computers, soon grew into larger sessions being held for entire secondary schools and additional sessions being held for parents and teachers. The scope of these sessions were initially limited to schools in Daren’s hometown of south Trinidad.
More recently, (2012 / 2013) it became evident that the concerns surrounding the issue of cyber safety were even more significant and imperative. The timing of this initiative could not have been more perfect as at the same time, Daren’s colleagues from the Campus IT Services of The University of The West Indies, St. Augustine Campus were working on an outreach initiative of similar nature. It was decided that this extended team would work towards creating content for the website as well as broaden the scope of outreach presence to not only the southern schools but to schools and other interested organizations across Trinidad and Tobago.
Since that time, CyberSafeTT has had the support of various organizations such as The Telecommunications Authority of Trinidad and Tobago who funded the production of the CyberSafeTT.com Video Series as well as supported the research initiative (2015) carried out with the extended team at The Unviersity of The West Indies, Campus IT Services. It is only with such assistance that this initiative can continue to thrive in a viable manner and be able to adequately contribute to the society at large.
