Safer Internet Day 2017Today, Tuesday, 7th February, is Safer Internet Day (SID).  Safer Internet Day is an EU-wide initiative to promote a safer internet for all users, especially young people. It is promoted in Ireland by the PDST Technology in Education and Webwise, and the theme this year is ‘Be the change: Unite for a better internet’.

We provide some very useful tips for both the younger Internet user and for parents and guardians on staying safe on the Internet.

Watch this fab rap video deliver the message 'never let a bully get into your head' and remember everyone, you should never have to deal with bullying.

Check out the Safer Internet Day Ireland 2017 website for information on activities across the country.

And check the hashtag #SID2017 on Twitter.
