Safer Internet Day TV 2019
This year for SID TV we have gone beyond ordinary video with some new and exciting formats including a 360° video, a virtual reality app and a music track available to stream and download. Designed to be used in classrooms and homes across the country, SID TV accompanies our Education Packs to allow young people, their teachers and their parents to explore this year’s theme: Our Internet, Our Choice: Understanding Consent in a Digital World.
Read on for a breakdown of the SID TV videos, when to use them and how to get the most out of them this Safer Internet Day.

What are the key messages? Consent can be a complex topic and the video and Education Pack encourages young people to approach the issue with thought, respect and sensitivity. Issues around data including how it is created, collected and stored are also explored in the Education Pack.
5. Your Choice or Mine?
Who is it for? Parents and carers
What is it and what is it about? We put young people and their parents head-to-head in a game show to find out how different or how similar their opinions were on a range of online consent topics.
How should I use it? Share the video with parents and carers to support the messages you will be delivering on Safer Internet Day. Together with the Education Pack for Parents and Carers, the video can be used to start conversation at home about online safety, consent, privacy and data sharing.
What are the key messages? Open and honest discussions at home are an important part of responsible use of technology and the internet for young people. By involving parents and carers in Safer Internet Day the messages delivered at schools, libraries, youth clubs and other settings can be discussed and reinforced at home.
