Back2School 2016

As part of our annual Back2School campaign, we invite teachers to explore the vast range of online safety tools and resources created by the European network of Safer Internet Centres (SICs).

In this 'Tour of Europe', many of our SICs have highlighted a particularly pertinent resource which you may wish to use with your pupils to raise their awareness of how to stay safe and responsible online, covering a myriad of issues from cyberbullying to sexting, and from digital media literacy to online extremism.

Additionally, be sure to visit the resource and video galleries on the Better Internet for Kids (BIK) portal to download online safety materials from across Europe, in your own languages.
A special thank you to our network of Safer Internet Centres for creating and sharing such fantastic resources!
