Safer Internet Day 2012

 Hi all,

Just a quick post to mention Internet Safety Day (SID) which will take place on the 7th February 2012.

The day has been organised by The UK Safer Internet Centre which is co-funded by the EC and brought to you by a partnership of three leading organisations, Childnet International, the South West Grid for Learning and the Internet Watch Foundation. CEOP's is helping to raise awareness to this day via their ThinkUKnow website and it's aim is to educate parents about how to keep their kids safer online. The ThinkUKnow website will host The Parents & Carers Guide to the Internet and will have interviews from experts including Dr Tanya Byron and Dr Linda Papadopoulos, industry players like Facebook and Moshi Monsters and, most importantly, children themselves - this guide aims to answer all of the tricky questions parents may be afraid to ask. It will be a short TV style programme which will be a light hearted and entertaining approach to show what it's like bringing up kids in today's online world.

A new page has been launched for parents on the ThinkUKnow site too which can be found here: https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents/  it has new content and from 7am on the 7th of February will also contain the new video guide mentioned above. (The video can also be found on CEOP's YouTube channel too at www.youtube.com/ceop ).

If you have any questions you want to ask the CEOP team – you can do so by posting questions via their facebook page (www.facebook.com/clickceop) or by joining the conversation on twitter by using #parentsguide between the hours of 6pm and 9pm.

Hope to see you there!
