8th February 2021
Students and staff at The City of Liverpool College are being reminded about the importance of staying safe online, as we celebrate the significant role the Internet and other digital technologies play in our lives.
Safer Internet Day is a global event that takes place this year on Tuesday 9 February. Under the overarching slogan: Together for a better Internet, the theme of the day focuses on: An internet we trust – exploring reliability in the online world.
As part of the commitment it makes to safeguarding its community, The College embeds e-safety into the curriculum, including through regular learner tutorials that address e-safety issues and the role we all play in providing a better and safer society online.
To mark the day’s events, Safer Internet Day network has produced a range of educational resources that reinforce the importance of keeping a positive digital footprint for the future. It also highlights to young people how the number of hours spent on mobile devices can have a big impact, not only on their lives and current social interactions but also their studies.
The College is one of more than 170 organisations around the world who get involved in the global conversation, including how to use technology in a respectful and responsible way.
The College has developed a few e-safety resources of its own for both staff and students, to help us think about our own online presence in an increasingly digital world:
