Safer Internet Day
Today is Safer Internet Day (SID), organised by the UK Safer Internet Centre to promote responsible use of online and mobile technology for young people.
The theme of SID 2013 is online rights and responsibilities; aiming to encourage users to ‘connect with respect.’
Why not start a discussion on the theme of online safety with your Group? You can order our free ‘stay safe’ leaflets from scouts.org.uk/shop, download educational activity packs from beatbullying.org/scouts and seek out your local Safeguarding Awareness Co-ordinator. There’s one in each County to teach young people about online safety, using principles from thinkuknow.co.uk.
And you can find out about the UK Safer Internet Centre at saferinternet.org.uk.
