4 weeks to go until Safer Internet Day 2021 – 4 things you can do now
Published: 15th January 2021
With only 4 weeks to go until Safer Internet Day on the 9th February, we take a look at some of the key things you can do to help make Safer Internet Day 2021 the biggest yet!
- Register as a supporter
By signing up as a supporter and telling us a bit more about your plans for the day, you will appear on our map of the UK which demonstrates the fantastic range and scope of activities happening across the country! Without the amazing work of all of the Safer Internet Day supporters we wouldn’t be able to reach and inspire such a fantastic number of young people across the UK.
- Download and use the UK Safer Internet Centre’s education resources and top tips
For Safer Internet Day the UKSIC have tailor made resources for 3-7s, 7-11s, 11-14s, 14-18s and parents and carers, along with some guidance for educators. Available in English and Welsh these free packs include lesson plans, posters, presentations, activities, top tips, films and more!
We know that across the UK many young people are learning remotely. To help support both educators and the young people they work with, we are currently making adaptations to the resources so that they work in the best possible way for both home learners and those still in educational settings. These adapted resources should be available in the next week.
- Get involved on social media
Why not share your support of Safer Internet Day by posting a message on your social media accounts? We have created a pack of possible posts and other key information which you can download here.
- Schedule this for 8am on Safer Internet Day
