Safer Internet Day

Tuesday 5 February  is Safer Internet Day – a global initiative to help inspire a national conversation about using technology responsibly, respectfully, critically and creatively. This year’s theme is ‘Together for a Better Internet’

Why not take a few minutes at the beginning or the end of the session to ask your youngsters what they enjoy doing on the computer, what they think the internet brings to their lives, and what they feel are the downsides. You might be surprised by their answers.

If you would like to do more, there are a range of resources available on the UKSIC and Thinkuknow websites to help you to plan a meeting on this theme and which could be linked with the Digtal Maker Staged Activity Badge. For Beavers, we have a mailable pack of resources available to enable you to deliver a session exploring what personal information should be shared online.

Contact Trudy on t.musgrove@norfolkscouts.org.uk if you would like to use this with your Colony. Packs for other sections can be produced if there is interest.
