The UK Safer Internet Centre has announced the launch of the Safer Internet Day Education Packs for primary age children (3-11 years), secondary age children (11-19 years) and parents and carers. These resources aim to help schools, youth groups and other organisations to deliver activities regarding keeping safe online for children, young people, parents and carers on Safer Internet Day 2016 on the 9th February.
This year the education packs aim to help young people to celebrate diversity online and so lead to a kinder, more respectful and inclusive internet, raising awareness about the issue of online hate. This is explored through a range of resources including posters, assembly presentations with scripts, drama activities, quick activities, full lesson plans and even films!
The films will be available from January as part of SID TV, and will help young people celebrate diversity online and give them the tools to understand and respond to online hate.
If your school, youth group or other organisations is running an activity for Safer Internet Day you are encouraged to join the Safer Internet Day supporter list. Registration is now open and settings will receive a Supporter Certificate when they complete the registration, to display in their school or workplace.
