Safer Internet Day 2012 presents the perfect opportunity for education establishments and parents to work together on addressing the potential opportunities for young people to use the internet, while remaining safe. The description from the site reads “Safer Internet Day (SID) will take place this year on Tuesday 7 February 2012 with a theme of ‘Connecting generations and educating each other’, and the slogan Discover the digital World together…safely!'”. Well worth checking out.
The eSafety portal, as you might expect, offers a wide range of tips and resources around how your learners, and you, can stay safe online. There are some useful resources, and, while some of them are free to access, some require you to pay a subscription. You can ‘try before you buy’ with a 30 day trial.
