Today is Safer Internet Day and once again we at BH Consulting are proud to support this worthy event. Safer Internet Day aims to make children, teenagers and young adults more aware of the dangers they could face when online. This year the focus is on the dangers posed by social networks.
In Ireland the day is organised by the National Centre for Technology in Education and they have organised the following events
TV and Radio Campaign
The Office for Internet Safety, the National Centre for Technology in Education, the National Parents Council (Primary), Childline, and the Hotline will host a joint Safer Internet Day event in Dublin to launch a TV and online awareness raising campaign focusing on the issue of cyberbullying.
There is also an online quiz aimed at raising awareness amongest 10 to 15 year old children and teenagers on the risks they could face online.
Why don’t you get involved? You can do various things from simply letting others know about the event to actively offering your services to talk to children in your local school, scout troop, sports or youth clubs.
