For work with 14-18s
We have created a range of resources to help you deliver sessions with 14-18 year olds this Safer Internet Day, whether you are a school, youth group, library, police service, or wider. We have also produced a short video to accompany this pack and serve as a conversation starter. These educational resources have been specifically designed to follow this theme and support educators in delivering messages about online identity.
The Education Pack contains:
- A guide to using the pack
- 3 mini presentations and scripts
- Quick activities
- Whole school or community activities
- Social media activities
We would like to thank Verizon Media for their kind support in the development of the Education Packs and the Welsh Government for supporting the translation.
About Safer Internet Day 2020
Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre the celebration sees hundreds of organisations get involved to help promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.
For Safer Internet Day 2020 we are empowering young people to explore identity online and opening up discussions about how the internet shapes the way that they think of themselves and others. It focuses on what creates our identity online – such as the things we share with each other, how others perceive us and interact with us, as well as how online services use the information we share to identify and profile us. In this resource young people will think about how we portray the different aspects of our identities online and reflect upon how others online treat us based on this. They will recognise how our identities are used as a measure of our authenticity online and consider whether this gives us true freedom in being ourselves.
