Safer Internet Day “Together for a Better Internet”
Safer Internet Day (SID) is an EU wide initiative to promote a safer internet for all users, especially young people. Over the years, Safer Internet Day has become a landmark event in the online safety calendar. Starting as an initiative of the EU SafeBorders project in 2004 and taken up by the Insafe network as one of its earliest actions in 2005, Safer Internet Day has grown beyond its traditional geographic zone and is now celebrated in approximately 160 countries worldwide.
From cyberbullying to social networking, each year Safer Internet Day aims to raise awareness of emerging online issues and chooses a topic reflecting current concerns.
A constructive debate between our teachers and students is ongoing.
Class activities in primary school and middle school departments will range from watching videos, up to letting students carry out quizzes on this topic.
