Safer Internet Day 2014

Students, Parents & Teachers can earn their SID2014 Badge

Safer Internet Day (SID) is organised by Insafe and UKSIC in February of each year to promote safer and more responsible use of online technology and mobile phones, especially amongst children and young people across the world.

Safer Internet Day 2014 will take place on Tuesday 11th February 2013. The theme for the day is ‘Let’s create a better internet together’.

Whether you are a young person, parent or teacher, you can earn your digital Open Badge by helping to create a better internet on Safer Internet Day 2014.

There are many ways that you can earn your SID2014 badges, which are being awarded by the Safe programme. You can create and share stories, blogs, videos and pictures about making the internet safer, via the safe social learning platform Makewaves.
