Play your part for a better internet
On 9 February 2016, millions across the UK and globally will be celebrating Safer Internet Day. Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre, the day is a great opportunity to talk to young people about the safe and positive use of technology.
The 2015 campaign was supported by over 850 UK schools and organisations, reaching 25 per cent of 11-16-year-olds.
This year’s theme is ‘Play your part for a better internet!’ and provides an opportunity for schools to make the most of the positive opportunities offered online, while giving young people the resilience, skills, knowledge and support they need to navigate any online risks they may come across.
To help you plan your school’s Safer Internet Day activities, the UK Safer Internet Centre is running two Safer Internet Day Twitter Q&As, that will provide teachers with more details about the theme, what will be available for schools, and ideas to help schools plan their day’s activities. These take place on Tuesday 24 November 2015 and Tuesday 12 January 2016 at 4.30-5.30pm, just tweet @UK_SIC with your questions and include the hashtag #SID2016.
