Helping kids learn about Virtual Lives – Gaming and Networking.

Don't forget to share



Tuesday the 8th of February 2011 is Safer Internet Day. 

Safer Internet Day is organised by Insafe to promote safer and more responsible use of mobile and online technology for children and young people around the world.

Insafe are Co-funded by The European Union.

This is the 8th year that Safer Internet Day will be celebrated, last year saw 500 events in 65 countries worldwide.

Each year Insafe chooses a different theme for people to base the activities on.
This year is its Virtual lives, and the slogan is – Its more than a game, its your life

Virtual lives: Online gaming and social networking, the two most popular online activities for our youth. 


The aim is to get the message across to children and young people that although they are hidden behind an avatar or a gamertag, actions in virtual lives can and will affect real lives.  

We all need to be aware of the consequences of our online actions, whether good or bad.

Children especially need to know how to be safe and responsible online and they can learn this the same way they learn everything else, with our support and encouragement

A few easy ways you can help
