At this time of year we like to remind schools and groups about the well established annual Safer Internet Day, this day is highlighted in the suggested calendar of Health and Wellbeing initiatives for all Highland schools. The title for this year is ‘Let’s Create a Better Internet Together!’
There are some great looking and free packs from the UK Safer Internet Centre for Safer Internet Day 2014 which takes place on 11 February. Of course, these activities can be delivered on any day that week but it’s great to join in the global awareness events taking place on the 11th. Ideas for lessons and assemblies available here at their dedicated Safer Internet Day webpage
Schools and youth / community groups can also use this as a launch pad for creating their own ideas and activities on becoming confident in the use of digital technology. Further suggestions are on our own Highland page here.
The hash tag for this is #SID2014 if you want to have a search about for ideas and updates globally. Get involved!
