Internet Safety Day is tomorrow, Tuesday, the 11th of February. It is a good time to discuss with children how to stay safe on the Internet as well as appropriate use of the World Wide Web. Click on the image to the left for more information and remember, there is an Internet Safety evening in Sligo Education Centre on Thursday see below.
Today is Safer Internet Day (SID), an event organised by Insafe in February of each year to promote safer and more responsible use of online technology and mobile phones, especially amongst children and young people across the world.
Safer Internet Day 2013 is the tenth edition of the event. The theme for the day is 'Online rights and responsibilities', when we encourage users to 'Connect with respect'.
