Thought-provoking resources to promote informed discussions about staying safe online

Safer Internet Day (SID), celebrated this year on Tuesday 9 February, is the perfect time to talk to your classes about both the benefits and dangers of using the internet. In the last 12 months, more student learning has taken place online than ever before which is what makes this years theme 'an internet we trust: exploring reliability in the online world' more significant than ever. 

To help to get students thinking about how to look after themselves online, we’ve selected a range of popular primary and secondary lesson ideas, activities, discussion starters and guides created for students to enjoy. These can be used as complete lessons or as jumping off points for wider discussion of these very important issues.

Interested in learning more about how you as an individual can educate and protect students online? Then check out this online safety course created by EduCare in partnership with Childnet
