Safer Internet day is being celebrated globally today with the slogan ‘Let’s create a better internet together’.
Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Center the celebration sees hundreds of organisations getting involved to help promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.
Take a look at the Safer Internet Day education resources for some ideas of how your school, pupils, and parents can all get involved in safer internet day.
Looking beyond today, schools need to commit to a future of keeping pupils and staff safe online. Building an online community in which your pupils can be safe online and explore digital learning is imperative to this. If you are looking for safe and secure learning networks, RM Unify has an app which can help.
