On the 9th 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
For Safer Internet Day 2016 the UK Safer Internet Centre is hoping to build on the successes and momentum of the 2015 campaign, which was supported by over 850 UK schools and organisations, reaching 25% of 11 – 16s. Most importantly the day had a huge impact with a third (32%) of 11-16s changing something about the way that they use the internet after hearing about Safer Internet Day!
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, whilst giving young people the resilience, skills, knowledge and support they need to navigate any online risks they may come across.
Looking for inspiration…
