Safer Internet Day Review
Yesterday’s safer internet day seems to have been a fantastic success.
The BBC launched their ‘Share, Take Care‘ campaign toÂ coincideÂ with the days events. Â BBC Radio 1 kept pushing their online gameÂ which gets you to approve status updates against the clock. Â They also give some sensible advice on protecting your digital footprint. Â DJ Greg James even wrote and performed a parody song! The world service even got involved by simulcasting a section of the Safer Internet Day Marathon Radio Show hosted by @russellprue.
Twitter was alive with links and opinions, helping people young and old to be safer online. Â The term ‘Safer Internet Day’ was trending in the UK on twitter for a good few hours. Â Police forces were linking to advice, charities were holding Q&As and lesson plans were being shared by and for teachers on a global scale using the hashtags #SID and #SID2012.
It is however a real shame that a story brokeÂ where a teacher had beenÂ reprimandedÂ after makingÂ inappropriateÂ remarks on facebook on the same day.
Congratulations to all the organisations and individuals who got involved, shared resources, gave opinion andÂ publicisedÂ such an important issue. Internet Safety is for life…
