The 21st century is an age where digital technologies are evolving at an enormous pace and changing people’s lives, work, and social interactions.

New HTML Heroes first and second-class online safety programme is launchedIrish Safer Internet Centre
“HTML Heroes: Welcome to the Internet” was officially launched in September 2021 by the Irish Minister for Education, Norma Foley TD. She commented: “To best equip children and young people to make the most of the internet, we need to begin from an early age. Like road safety, children need to know the basics of accessing the internet, how to use it effectively and safely, and to know what to do if something goes wrong and where to get help and assistance. It is my hope that this new programme from Webwise will help teachers and school staff build these foundations with pupils in an age-appropriate manner. Through colourful illustrations, stories and an online safety code that reinforces key safety messages, the new HTML Heroes Programme for first and second class is an excellent starting point for children”.
