With the theme once again “Together for a better Internet”, this day invites all actors to come together to make the Internet a safer and better place for everyone, especially for children and young people.

Also, pupils enjoyed the games and other activities during the meeting.
The students EB1/PE da Marinheira, Portugal, carried out activities within the scope of the Safer Internet Week, in order to be alerted to the need to adopt a critical and conscious attitude towards what the Internet offers us. Thus, issues such as cyberbullying, fake news, phishing, the publication of photos or personal data were addressed, so that children, the most vulnerable users, can use that tool more safely.
During the week, in the ICT class, they explored informative presentations and videos, played fun educational games and quizzes on this theme and talked a lot about the dangers inherent in using the Internet.
Students of Ş. Ahmet Birkaç İlkokulu, Turkey, celebrated Safer Internet Day with an online occasion held by Specialist Dr. Elif Can Sümbül. Students are informed about how to use internet safely and be aware of the correct internet practices. Staying safe on the internet is a vital part of modern technology use, students had the chance to discuss variety of topics from privacy and passwords to cyberbullying and online identity. It was a useful webinar for both the students and parents.
During the week, the students were assigned for the e-safety campaign poster. They coloured mandala letters to be used for the poster and sent the photos. We used WhatsApp for easy and fast communication for the coordination of the task. Because in Turkey, the schools are closed for semester holiday. At the end of the activity, students decided on 9 golden tips for e-safety that we created a poster to be displayed in the classrooms.
Learning while they are younger is a perfect way to empower children to develop the ability to think critically about how they use the internet, and that is a skill that will last for their whole lives!e-safety campaign
