Tuesday 6th February
Safer Internet Day is celebrated globally in February each year in over a hundred countries to promote the safe and positive use of digital technology for children and young people and inspire a national conversation.
The day offers the opportunity to highlight positive uses of technology and to explore the role we all play in helping to create a better and safer online community. It calls upon young people, parents, carers, teachers, social workers, law enforcement, companies, policymakers, and wider, to join together in helping to create a better internet.
As a part of this initiative, we are pleased to announce a challenge for school students: Students are required to “Create” a presentation for parents, video record the presentation and post on YouTube.
The title for the presentation is “Make Your Parents Safe Techie“.
Objective of this challenge is to ignite the skill of research and critical thinking in children. As the child deeply researches digital safety domain, they will understand the importance of digital safety themselves.
The challenge also facilitates more family time, integration with parents and hence increases the self-esteem of the children. This will also enhance the presentation and project management skills of students.
