Today's younger generation has always lived with the internet at their fingertips, and as Artificial Intelligence (AI) increasingly weaves into the fabric of their daily routines, many remain unaware of the potential dangers. These are only two of the many reasons KnowBe4 developed its Children's Interactive Cybersecurity Activity Kit, a fun and interactive cybersecurity kit helping parents, guardians, and educators teach children crucial internet safety and security skills.

KnowBe4 has used Synthesia's AI video platform to create a new module for its Kit this week. AI Safety for Students is a video-based lesson aimed at students in grades three to eight who unknowingly use AI and do not understand the risks associated. In this module, students will gain an understanding of what AI is and will be given the knowledge and skills to navigate the digital world safely while benefiting from AI's capabilities for learning and entertainment.

The new module launched in several languages including English, Spanish, French, German, and Japanese.

"Our duty as a security organization is to pass on our knowledge in a way that is both enjoyable and interesting, helping parents, guardians, educators, and children to learn more about being safe online. Our latest module, our first aimed at helping students, tackles AI – today's most significant tech trend – that a lot of children use without knowing the potential dangers," explained John Just, chief learning officer at KnowBe4. "AI Safety for Students does not just point out what can go wrong, but it also shows them how to use AI in a safe way. We look forward to introducing more content in the future to help children more safely navigate the online world."
