BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT
About our SID activities
To maximise the reach of the Safer Internet Day message, we will be using social media and our professional networks to reach our members, volunteers and teaching communities in order to raise awareness of Safer Internet Day. We will be encouraging our global teaching networks to engage with Safer Internet Day and the accompanying resources.
We will also be promoting resources from our organisation aimed at supporting primary teachers, Barefoot Computing. We have created an Online Safety page that collates all our resources to help primary teachers spread awareness about Safer Internet Day in the primary computing classroom.
What we are doing to support the SID 2023 slogan of "Together for a better internet"…
BCS have been working over the past twelve months on various projects to make the internet a better and safer place. This includes our collaboration with the government on the Internet Safety Strategy and being a founder of the new National Centre for Computing Education (NCCE).
What we are doing to mark the 20th anniversary of Safer Internet Day…
By collaborating with our partner organisation, Barefoot Computing, we hope to reach an even wider audience and spread awareness about Safer Internet Day early on, from the primary computing classroom.
