New SuperErrori mini-series raises eSafety awareness in Italy
- Italian Safer Internet Centre
The Italian Safer Internet Centre (SIC), Generazioni Connesse, has launched a new campaign which aims to raise awareness of eSafety issues among Italian youth and parents.
The campaign sees the return of the #SuperErrori (SuperMistakes) mini-series with new daily adventures and new funny situations outlining some common mistakes made on the web. Through six new episodes, #SuperErrori will help both students and parents to better understand and learn about dangers on the web and, through the every-day misadventures depicted, better understand how to prevent such hazards, while also raising awareness and mastery in the use of internet resources.
Two episodes in the series have launched so far…
The first episode, ChatWoman, focuses on the fact that chat can be a wonderful thing if you are using it in the right way and warns about the dangers of excess.
It is important to respect your own privacy, but also that of others. Think about what you publish and who you share it with, and reflect before writing a comment; a virtual offense is a real offense! The second episode, Tempestata, further considers the issues of cyberbullying and peer pressure.
