Safer Internet Day (SID) is celebrated annually and this year the 7th of February marks the 20th Edtion. The day aims to raise awareness and push for a safer internet for our children and teenagers, ensuring they have a positive experience online.
SID is an EU-wide initiative to promote a safer internet for users, especially young people.
The theme this year is “Together for a better internet”, which encourages people globally to join together and make the internet a safer place for all.
How to get involved?
This Safer Internet Day in Ireland, Webwise and the National Parents Council Primary are assisting parents through the #TalkListenLearn initiative. This campaign highlights the importance of having regular and open conversations with kids and teenagers to ensure they have a positive and safe experience online.
In order to support the campaign, a number of resources have been created, including:
– SID Stakeholder Toolkit for Parents.
– Updated Webwise Parent Guide to a Better Internet.
– Talking Points for Parents.
– #TalkListenLearn Topic Generator– a new tool to encourage more conversations between parents and children.
