Next year, Safer Internet Day (SID) will take place on Tuesday 7 February 2012 and will be centred around the theme “Connecting generations and educating each other”.
The UK Safer Internet Centre, together with the University of Plymouth is undertaking some research into ‘inter-generational’ technological use:
- How involved are parents with their children’s online lives?
- Do children support their grandparents?
- How many children speak to their grandparents online?
The research aims to understand more around how generations connect to each other.
Please encourage pupils, staff and parents to complete the short research online at www.saferinternet.org.uk/connecting-generations-research
Kent schools and settings taking part in SID can contact the e-Safety Officer to publicise, discuss or highlight ideas and events going on in your community.
