Safer Internet Day 2014 - Are you ready?

The 11th Safer Internet Day (SID 2014) will be celebrated worldwide on 11th February 2014. The theme for the day is: 'Let's create a better internet together'.

In support of this significant event, last week several of my colleagues ran a very successful online all-day event entitled ‘Preparing for Safer Internet Day and beyond’. This was to help raise awareness for the national campaign and support learning providers to develop their approach for Safer Internet Day next year. event provided a wealth of useful Safer Internet Day information, and resources and links to help you to host the campaign in your organisation. Online attendees got to discover what’s available within Jisc regarding the legal implications related to e-safety and supporting vulnerable learners. They were also shown examples of e-safety best practice within education plus details of the amazing campaigns from last year.

The good news is for those who missed it, that ALL of the presentations, supporting resources and webinar recordings are now freely available online. These resources comprehensively cover the following key areas.
  • Hot topics (Jisc Legal)
  • Supporting vulnerable learners with e-safety (Jisc TechDis)
  • eSafety infoKit (Jisc Infonet)
  • Best practice examples of the impact of SID2013 from educational providers
  • Bring your own device (BYOD) Security together (Janet)
  • The latest information from CEOP, and ThinkUKnow for post-16 providers
  • Best-practice examples of e-safety implementation (from educational providers) and the impact for learners and the organisation
  • Moving forward with SID2014 campaign

At this point the recordings can be freely accessed and watched at your own leisure, no log in is required. 

Covering so many elements of using the internet safely, the site is certainly worth a look by anyone with an interest in e-safety or safer internet use. It’s great that it is now free to access and I hope these resources prove useful and assist you in supporting the theme of the 2014 Safer Internet Campaign, 'Let's create a better internet together!’
