Safer Internet Day (SID) seeks to promote safer and more responsible use of online technology and mobile devices, especially among children and young people across the world. SID 2018 will be celebrated on 6 February 2018 with the theme of "Create, connect and share respect: A better internet starts with you".
If you allow me to help you choose a very useful resource for teenage learners, have a look at this one : it is a lesson plan on how to make strong passwords, how to avoid malware and hacking by keeping anti-virus and software updated always, and how to detect safe web shops from online scam shops. It also offers advice on how to take control over your digital life, and on what to and what not to share on your social media profiles. You can download the resource ”Staying Safe Online – Youth and Digital Security” here.
(This resource is an international version of the original Danish booklet “Unge og Digital Sikkerhed”, which is used in the Danish Money Week from 2017 and beyond. Original version was written in corporation by a series of Danish organizations and institutions: Finance Denmark, The Danish Police, The Agency for Digitization, The e-mark, The Media Council for Children and Young People in Denmark.)
I wish to acknowledge the great help provided by the organizations and institutions above and extend my gratitude to the many partners that support Safer Internet Day with awareness-raising events and educational resources to make the internet a safer and better place.
If you prefer to approach the topic through Music, I recommend this complete resource by the British Council based on " I like it", a song which was created three years ago by members of GMCBeats rap workshops and Webwise Ireland to celebrate Safer Internet Day. The resource includes both interactive exercises and worksheets that can be downloaded.
Why not enjoy the rap song while you decide on the resource you like the best?
