Educational Resources

Safer Internet Day 2021 celebrated the amazing range of information and opportunities online, and its potential to inform, connect and inspire us, whilst also looking at how young people can separate fact from fiction.

The campaign focused on how we can know what to trust online, supporting young people to question, challenge and change the online world. It explored how influence, persuasion and manipulation can impact young people’s decisions, opinions and what they share online.

To help educators to deliver practical and impactful activities for Safer Internet Day we created a range of free resources, including; films, lesson plans, assemblies, quick activities and more!
