Safer Internet Day Kit for Schools 2013
Welcome, and thank you for joining us to celebrate Safer Internet Day (SID) 2013, taking place on Tuesday 5 February 2013 with the theme ‘Online rights and responsibilities’ and the slogan ‘Connect with respect’.
In 2013, for the second year running, we have again produced a SID Kit for Schools (and other educators), to bring together some great resources for raising online safety awareness. Click on the links to the right to explore.
You can use the resources as best suits your local circumstances. For example, you may choose to use all or a selection of the resources, or you may choose to take parts of the kit and adapt them to your own needs. Likewise, although Safer Internet Day is celebrated on a particular day, you may choose to raise the profile of online safety over a day, week or month, depending on what is appropriate in your individual setting. And, as this year’s theme focuses on ‘Online rights and responsibilities’, you may wish to consider this issue for all stakeholders in a child’s online experiences – for example the rights and responsibilities of parents and carers, educators, and industry, as well as the rights and responsibilities of children and young people themselves in their online lives.
In addition to the resources outlined here, we will also be running a great competition for children and young people to tell us about their online achievements. There are some fantastic prizes to be won, or even the chance of becoming an ambassador for promoting online safety messages in the future. The competition will launch on SID itself – come back then for further information.
We hope you find this kit useful. Should you have any comments, questions or suggestions for future SID campaigns, please get in touch via the Safer Internet Day helpdesk.
And please remember to keep checking the Safer Internet Day website both leading up to and beyond the day for the latest information on SID celebrations in your own country, and across the globe.
