Safer Internet Day 2021
This event will take place on 09/02/2021
Safer Internet Day will be celebrated on 9th February 2021, with the theme: ‘An Internet we trust; exploring reliability in the online world’.
The campaign focuses on how we decide what to trust online and explores how influence, persuasion, and manipulation can impact young people’s decisions, opinions, and what they share online.
It also looks at the emotional impact of navigating a misleading online world and the importance of creating a supportive, critical, questioning culture, and giving young people the skills to spot misleading content and support one another online.
To help educators to deliver practical and impactful activities for Safer Internet Day the UK Safer Internet Centre (UKSIC) have created a range of free resources, including films, lesson plans, assemblies, quick activities and more!
UKCIS have also a parent/carers pack which includes activities, conversation starters and information to help parents and carers talk to their children at home about how to navigate the issue of reliability of information online in a safe, responsible and engaging way.
