Safer Internet Day 2021




An internet we trust: exploring reliability in the online world


Safer Internet Day 2021 celebrates the amazing range of information and opportunities online, and its potential to inform, connect and inspire us, whilst also looking at how young people can separate fact from fiction.




1. MUST DO: Watch the three short video clips in our Video Resource Centre (click HERE), which have lots of really useful information about what you can and can't trust online...including some top tips from experts.


2. MUST DO: Watch the virtual Safer Internet Day assembly (by clicking HERE). Join Amy from The UK Safer Internet Centre as she discusses whether or not we can trust everything we see online. It's about 15 minutes long.


3. SHOULD DO: Open the 'Among Us' themed work. Go through the slides, enjoy being a detective, looking for the fake news imposter among us. You can view the 'Among Us' themed work further down on this page. Great fun, this one! This will take you around 20 minutes to do.


4. MUST DO: Complete the 'Trust Online: Jargon Buster' activity. The instructions are on the first page. Take a photo of your finished work and share it on the blog/email. You can also find the answers below...but no peeking! We reckon about 15-20 minutes for this one. 


5. MUST DO: You have been set a 2Do to complete. Make sure you do it after you've watched the assembly and perhaps the 'Trust Online: Jargon Buster' activity. This is a short five-minute quiz, checking your understanding about whether you can trust advertising online.


6. MUST DO: Do you want to be involved in a Guinness World Record attempt? All you have to do is click on this link (HERE) and make your PLEDGE. You can add further drawings or statements to your pledge, then click on SAVE. This will take no more than five minutes.


7. REALLY NICE TO DO: Below is a template to design a poster to show your support for Safer Internet Day 2021 (#AnInternetWeTrust). You can either print it out or do it electronically (snipping tool the image onto a Word/Powerpoint document). What do you have to do? You need to fill the magnifying glass with ideas about how we can create an Internet we trust. This could be:


● Questions to ask when you are looking at information online, for example: Who wrote this? Why was it written?
● Words or questions we can ask to help us spot if something is reliable online.
● Illustrations of what a better, more trustworthy internet could look like. Or images of online clues that may make something seem less reliable or trustworthy.
● Pledges of what you will do to help create a more trustworthy internet, such as, “I will only share things I have checked are true.” or “I will support my friends if fake news upsets them.”


Take a photo of your finished poster, upload it to the blog, and in the 'Title' box, simply put #AnInternetSpringfieldTrusts.


Here's an example:
