Safer Internet Day (SID) is an EU wide initiative to promote a safer internet for all users, especially young people. It is promoted in Ireland by the PDST Technology in Education and Webwise. The Theme for Safer Internet Day 2018 is “Create, connect and share respect: A better internet starts with you”. Safer Internet Day 2018 will be celebrated on Tuesday, February 6th. Over 70,000 young people across Ireland joined the celebrations this year. Take a look at some of the highlights from Safer Internet Day 2017 here.
An important aspect of anti-bullying prevention and internet safety in schools is the active involvement of students in building a positive school climate. As a part of our Safer Internet Day (SID) 2018 campaign, Webwise is reaching out to post-primary students and encouraging and supporting them to address the issue of cyberbullying and internet safety by leading awareness-raising campaigns in their clubs, schools, and communities. We would like you to get involved!
