Safer Internet Day - February 11, 2020 - "Together for a better internet"
Tuesday, February 11, is Safer Internet Day. 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. This year's theme—Together for a better internet—encourages everyone to play their part in creating a safer, more secure internet.
In the United States, Safer Internet Day has partnered with an organization called ConnectSafely. 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.
