INTERNET SAFER DAY/A good impact on my life

Guia: Hello Chiara, I would like to ask you some questions about your connection with internet for the Safer Internet Day.
Chiara: Of course, I’m ready.
Guia: Thank you, let’s start right now. First, I want to ask you how often you connect, and if you think that internet has a good or a bad impact on your life.
Chiara: I connect very often, sometimes for school, but sometimes also for my pleasure, when I’m bored or when I have nothing to do. Honestly, I think internet has a good impact on my life, because it helps me very much when I have to study, but also a bad impact, especially when I spend too much time on my phone or on my computer, loosing track of time.
Guia: How do you think internet has affected your lockdown period during the pandemic?
Chiara: I think the internet had a good influence on my life during lockdown because it helped me to stay informed and to communicate with my friends and relatives, but, as I said before, it also had a bad influence because I spent too much time on social media without realising it.
Guia: You said that the internet has helped you stay informed. Which website did you use to know what was happening in your city, or in the rest of the world?
Chiara: I mostly used online newspapers, but also social media, such as Twitter.
Guia: Do you think the websites you visited were safe, did you feel unsafe while reading them?
Chiara: Regarding Twitter, I think it was safe because it’s pretty popular as an app, and almost everybody has it, so honestly I haven’t really thought about it. I can’t really say the same thing for online newspapers though, not because I got any virus or something while visiting them, but because they weren’t as popular as Twitter, and some of them didn’t look very safe.
Guia: How do you know if a website is safe or not?
Chiara: I’m not very good at this, but let’s say that sometimes it’s enough that a website is not popular to raise the question that it is unsafe, and I know it’s not a good reason but I think it’s better to pay more attention than we should, instead of getting viruses for not being careful enough.
Guia: Speaking about being careful, do you consider yourself a careful person when you have to share your personal data?
Chiara: Absolutely yes, I always pay attention to my personal data, and before sharing it, I have to be 100% sure that the website or even the app that I’m using is safe and reliable.
Guia: So I guess that you have thought about the consequences and possible problems that may arise.
Chiara: Of course, and I also think that a lot of people underestimate this problem, and don’t pay enough attention online.
Guia: I think so too. Thank you so much Chiara for answering my questions!

Chiara: My pleasure!

Lo scorso anno io e Silvia abbiamo avuto l’opportunità di insegnare lo spagnolo alla scuola primaria, un’esperienza che ci ha fatto crescere, divertire con i bambini, ma soprattutto essere immerse nel mondo dell’insegnamento.

Purtroppo, a causa della situazione sanitaria, siamo riuscite ad incontrare i nostri piccoli alunni solamente una volta. Per questo motivo abbiamo deciso di pubblicare un video che racchiude alcuni dei vocaboli riguardanti gli animali e i colori.

Buona visione!

Safer Internet Day (SID) is an international event taking place in February every year. It promotes a safer and a more responsible use of online technology by children and young people across the world.

Over the years, Safer Internet Day (SID) has become an event in the online safety calendar. It is celebrated in more than 170 countries across all continents, and reaches millions of people worldwide. This year’s Safer Internet Day celebrations took place on Tuesday, 9 February, under the slogan ‘Together for a better internet’.

Each year SID calls for action to provide a safer and better digital environment for the young users: decision makers at EU, national and international level, industry, civil society, educators, parents and young people themselves. The Internet is a powerful tool with enormous opportunities for learning, enhancing skills, new abilities and knowledge, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, it can have risks as well. The main goal of SID is to raise awareness but also to help to provide protection of children and young people online.

We need everyone to join in and work with others in order to ensure a better digital experience for all of us, and especially for the younger users because the digit

Nowadays, we can’t imagine life without the Internet because it is very helpful and necessary especially during the pandemic.
Students in many countries can learn, have lessons and meet online with friends. But we have to remember the dangers on the Internet.
Safer Internet Day is celebrated in the first half of February in the whole Europe. This day is very important because we should know what dangers we can encounter on the Internet. It aims to draw the attention of children, teenagers and also their parents to access to the Internet network in a secure way.
You have to remember that the person on the other end of the computer may not be the same person you see for example in the photos.
The next important thing is not to give your password to another person because it can have serious consequences. You should create your password which does not include your name, your siblings, your dog or favourite colour and shouldn’t relate to your life.
Parents should monitor what their children do on the Internet and who they chat with. Adults can use special programs which block dangerous websites.
You have to be alert and attentive about the information you share about yourself or which website you visit and in that way you can be safe on the Internet.
