Over the years, Safer Internet Day (SID) has become a landmark event in the online safety calendar, with schools across the world getting involved to create a safer environment for all online. Now celebrated in over 150 countries worldwide, and in its 18th year, Safer Internet Day (9th February) aims to raise awareness of emerging online issues and chooses a topic reflecting current concerns. This year the theme is: ‘An internet we trust: Exploring reliability in the online world’. Whatever your school is planning for Safer Internet Day, don’t forgot to register as an official supporter of the day and to download your school’s certificate.
At 2Simple, we’re celebrating Safer Internet Day with Purple Mash offering several free resources that you can use in your classrooms. By focussing on reliability in the online world, we’re offering pupils the chance to explore the theme using the following resources.
Some of the resources* have been kindly shared with 2Simple from Childnet. They are available for a limited time after Safer Internet Day on the 9th February 2021. Please refer to Childnet if you require them beyond Safer Internet Day.
*The Poster, Social Media Activities, Quick Activities and Assemblies are resources shared by Childnet. Please download their resources here should you wish to use them past Safer Internet Day.
