Safer Internet Day is organised by Insafe each year in February to promote safer and more responsible use of online technology and mobile phones, especially amongst children and young people across the world. This year’s Safer Internet Day is 5th February 2013.
As part of this year’s Safer Internet Campaign The Child Exploitation Online Protection Agency (CEOP)have released some short little videos on their YouTube Channel that have been designed to help teachers talk about some of the issues surrounding Internet Safety and Responsible Use. What is quite nice about the resource is that there is a Primary and Secondary Version for some of the topics.
The second topic that they deal with is Cyberbullying. Cyberbullying is bullying that takes place via technology. As a parent/ carer it can be difficult to know who to turn to for help and advice. In the videos below CEOP and other experts in this field offer this advice and practical steps on how to protect and support their child if they are being cyberbullied.
Here is the primary version:
