How did you celebrate 2019’s Safer Internet Day on the 5th of February 2019? Did your organisation make a big deal? You’re probably thinking, “what’s Safer Internet Day”? Well, you wouldn’t be alone either. It was created by UK Safer Internet Centre, funded by the UK Government, to help provide a safer internet experience by teaching young people about good internet safety skills.
To find out how you could educate your kids about responsible use of web technologies and respectful web use for kids, the UK’s Safer Internet Centre has created educational packs to help educate people.
There are tailored packs for 3-7-year-olds, 7-11-year-olds, 11-14 year-olds, 14-18 year-olds along with additional guidance for parents, carers and educators. These guides can help provide useful internet “life” skills that can help provide the right mental skills to help prepare young people for safe internet use.
