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

Safer Internet Day (SID), celebrated this year on Tuesday 6 February, is the perfect time to talk to your classes about both the benefits and dangers of using the internet. As students are spending more and more time online for their studies, socialising and entertainment, it makes this year's theme, 'Inspiring change? Making a difference, managing influence and navigating change online' more relevant 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.
