United States of America Safer Internet Day Committee - ConnectSafely

Last updated: 2022-01-05

About our SID activities

We will create a series of videos for schools featuring young creators and digital well-being experts that schools can pick and choose from to create the program that works best for them. For each video, our director of K-12 Education will provide Discussion Prompts to promote conversation.

Topics that we will focus on include:

  • body image.
  • fear of missing out (FOMO).
  • social comparison.
  • cyberbullying.
  • social drama.
  • misinformation.
  • controlling your social media feeds.
  • the metaverse and extended reality.

We will also create programming based around these topics for parents and other caregivers.
 

What we are doing to support the SID 2022 slogan of "Together for a better internet"…

Our content will feature discussion prompts for schools and families to encourage dialogue about how creating a better and safer internet for everyone takes everyone.
