10 February 2009 is European Safer Internet Day. The main objective of Safer Internet Day (SID) 2009 is to bring together key stakeholders, in as many countries as possible, to raise awareness about safe and responsible use of new technologies especially among children and young people.
We would like as many schools in Kent to highlight this day in their calendars with an event such as a special assembly, a competition or a project.
Schools can download a pack of resources including brand new stand-alone KS2 and KS3/4 assemblies (with Teaching Materials to support them) which have been produced by the Child Expolitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP). These two short (approx 8 minute) films are highlighting the issues of safe Social Networking for Young People and being aware of how information they may have posted online can put them in danger.
CEOP will be signposting all the resources schools will need for SID 2009, including those focused on cyberbullying and other issues on theri ThinkUKnow website.
Please click here to register and CEOP will keep you up-to-date with developments and new ideas. The new assemblies are avaiable in the “Resources” section of the website.
If you are already a registered user of the Thinkuknow website, please login here before downloading the resources for the Safer Internet Day Assemblies. Please note these resources are only available to schools/teachers registered with CEOP.
