Safer Internet Day 2015 will be celebrated globally on Tuesday 10th February with the slogan ‘Let’s create a better internet together’.
Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre the celebration sees hundreds of organisations get involved to help promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.
Globally, Safer Internet Day is celebrated in over a hundred countries, coordinated by the joint Insafe/INHOPE network, with the support of the European Commission, and 31 national Safer Internet Centres across Europe.
The day offers the opportunity to highlight positive uses of technology and to explore the role we all play in helping to create a better and safer online community. It calls upon young people, parents, carers, teachers, social workers, law enforcement, companies, policymakers, and wider, to join together in helping to create a better internet. Ultimately, a better internet is up to us!
Pupils at Alfriston will be focusing on e-safety all week. Classroom activities range from “speed-friending” to writing their own code of conduct for emails. They will also be thinking about how to make the Internet better in a whole school assembly. Outside the classroom anybody can get involved by taking the SID quiz so why not have a go yourself?
And look out for the Information Sheet coming home from school this week.
