Each year Safer Internet Day encourages parents and children alike to think about their internet usage and values – what agreements should be in place to avoid over use or misuse, how misuse of the internet can be registered and handled, how to stop bullying and addiction and much more.
Normally we give advice to you but this year the Safer Internet Center – www.saferinternet.org.uk - is asking all children and young adults to help them!
We want to hear what you think your online rights should be.
With help from the University of Plymouth, the Safer Internet Centre have today launched two surveys designed specifically for primary and secondary schools, the results of which will help to highlight the responsibilities of government and the internet industry, and what else needs to be done to make the internet a safer place.
The survey will give children and young people the chance to reflect on their own online responsibilities, considering how the way they act online can affect their own and other people’s online experiences.
Schools from across the UK are being asked to help the UK Safer Internet Centre raise the voice of children and young people by completing the survey which can be found online at www.saferinternet.org.uk/survey.
