Safer Internet Day

Whether it’s at home or at school; for education, socialising or gaming, the internet continues to be an ever-present, all-prevailing feature in the lives of young people. 

Children of all ages have become supremely confident in navigating the boundless landscape of the online experience—and, when used safely, the internet can be an enriching, life-changing tool for the digital generation.

Safer Internet Day 2022

While the internet has the potential to offer a rich tapestry of positive learning and social outcomes, there’s always scope for adults, parents, and educators to safeguard a child’s online ventures. 

Each year in February, Safer Internet Day is celebrated to encourage the safe and positive use of digital technology for children and young people. At its core, the event hopes to invigorate the global conversation about using technology responsibly, respectfully, and creatively.

The theme of this year’s event, celebrated on the 8th of February, will explore the idea of respect and relationships online—calling on stakeholders to join forces to make the internet a much safer, happier place for all….particularly for children and young people:

Together for a better internet.’

Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre, Safer Internet Day is celebrated in more than a hundred countries, all under the umbrella of the joint Insafe/INHOPE network, supported by the European Commission, and national Safer Internet Centres across Europe.

So, in whatever capacity a young person chooses to immerse themselves in the online environment—whether it’s learning, streaming, gaming, or browsing—Safer Internet Day encourages the idea of a safe, wholesome experience. 

Computeam’s role in Safeguarding the Internet for Children

Computeam take the responsibility of safeguarding the internet for children very seriously—and there are a number of systems we would typically encourage and implement in schools to ensure that these demands are met.

From web filtering software that restricts access to inappropriate or unsuitable web content for students, to Securly’s sophisticated AI algorithms to track and report student online activity, we have a deep well of resources to tackle this fundamental concern, at school and in the home.

Using Computeam Connect, we are also able to provide an integral link between users and their applications and data—meaning the process of monitoring students’ internet habits, search engine history, and social media screentime, is made that much easier.

How can we help?

With a wealth of experience and knowledge in the field of safeguarding school networks and devices, Computeam are in a position of authority on a hugely important, universal issue. Using the very best in software, technology and training, we will look to find the right solution for your school.
