Understanding behaviour

This section will help you understand how you behave online, why you do it, and what might be a problem. It will help you see if you’re doing things that could hurt you or others. When you finish the modules, it will help you see how your online actions affect your life and relationships. This can lead to using the internet in a healthier and more responsible way, so you don’t harm anyone and prevent you from offending.
