Middle Country became aware of ConnectSafely because of Safer Internet Day, for which ConnectSafely is the United States partner for the worldwide organization. Safer Internet Day is a worldwide event aimed at promoting the safe and positive use of digital technology for all users, especially children and teens. Safer Internet Day takes place on the second Tuesday in February each year.
ConnectSafely has great resources on their website including tips & advice, for students, educators, parents, and seniors. There are specific guides written for cyberbullying, the most popular social media websites (TikTok, Instagram, Snapchat, etc.), games (Roblox), and general guides for things like cybersecurity, shopping, mobile phones, media literacy & fake news, and more.
