As part of a guest panel discussion, attendees will hear about the benefits and challenges of our digital lives, as well as answer questions posed by SID Ambassadors. An event recording will be available for students and schools to view on Safer Internet Day on Tuesday, February 8, 2022.
Are you a teacher or lecturer? As a teacher or educator, there are many ways you can participate in Safer Internet Day. First, an important way is to raise awareness: talk to your peers to plan school-wide activities, and really focus your day, week, or even month on safer online activities. If you are looking for resources to help you with this, check out the SID Resource Gallery.
Here you will find a range of resources, from building plans and lessons to printable games to use in the classroom, in multiple languages, and for different age groups. You can also contact your local Safer Internet Center or Safer Internet Day Committee for specific actions in your country. They can also help with more targeted resources. If your school has a social media account, you can support SID by tweeting and posting about your activities and by sharing our posts. You can find featured posts, visuals, and covers in our social media plans.
This will give students a basic understanding of how algorithms and artificial intelligence work. In addition, we will discuss together how this affects the development and spread of hate speech and fake news. The theoretical foundations are taught through practical exercises and will allow you to better understand other phenomena on the Internet in the long run. Attention is paid to typical errors in the creation and interpretation of statistics. This should allow critical processing of statistics in the media. It should also give a sense of the error proneness of AI systems, which in the broadest sense are just statistics.
Whether you are a young person, a parent or guardian, a teacher or educator, a policy maker, or represent an organization or industry, everyone has a role to play in creating and maintaining a better online world.
Content and discussions will be shared on social media using the hashtag #SID2022. All interested parties are encouraged to take part in the action day themselves, to become active and creative. Sometimes you may unwittingly stumble upon illegal online content, such as images of child abuse. Always remember: you can report it and delete it.
