February 7, 2012 is Safer Internet Day: Connecting generations and educating each other
Today is Safer Internet Day and the theme for 2012 is connecting generations and educating each other. Activities are taking place in Australia and around the world to encourage people to help each other stay safe online.
The Cybersmart website has some fabulous resources to help facilitate discussion across the generations about the online world.
Cybersmart’s key messages for schools, libraries and families this Safer Internet Day are:
- Talk about online safety—with all members of your family and school community
- Protect Your Privacy—Check your privacy settings and update your software

This annual international event is coordinated by Insafe , the European network for internet safety, and supported in Australia by the ACMA.
