INTERNET SAFER DAY/The dangers at home

In the next paragraph I will be interviewing my cousin Giulia asking her a few questions about how she accesses online websites.

 

Me: Hello Giulia, in honour of safer internet day I would like to ask you a few questions about what you think about this topic.

Giulia: Yes, of course, go ahead! 

Me: During Covid-19, since the whole world has been forced to stay at home, do you think more people have gone online over the past few months?

Giulia: Yes, I do think so. Because of the pandemic I’ve been accessing more websites and watching more videos and movies.

Me: Do you know if the way that you access websites to watch movies and videos is safe?

Giulia: Yes, I usually spend lots of time on YouTube or on Netflix, and, from what people say and what I’ve looked up online, they are both very safe websites.

Me: Do you ever use other websites that are known to be unsafe?

Giulia: Sometimes, if I can’t find a movie on Netflix or on Television, I usually stream movies online on pirate websites.

Me: Do you feel safe on these websites?

Giulia: Not really… I hear people often get viruses and/or get contacted by people they don’t know.

Me: Would you ever share personal data on these websites?

Giulia: Netflix has my credit card information, so yes. On YouTube I would never share any of my information in the comments, but on the other hand, I would share my credit card information if I were to sign up to a channel or sign up to the premium version of YouTube. Instead, I would never share any type of information on streaming websites which are illegal and have free access for anyone. The same goes for any type of websites I visit when looking up general information or, as a student, school related questions.

Me: When you access websites daily are you aware of the consequences that could occur?

Giulia: Of course I am. I always make sure I have a VPN or any other type of protection for my personal information.

Me: Thank you so much for participating! Remember to stay safe online!

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.

In 2020,  the European Commission organised a workshop which focused on exploring the potential of Artificial Intelligence to fight against online child sexual abuse material and hosted a launch of the Youth Pledge, a youth-led co-creation process with industry partners.

SID 2019 was one of the milestones of the #SaferInternet4EU campaign which reached over 30 million people in 2018 with over 1800 new resources on online safety, media literacy and cyber hygiene.

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

INTERNET/Keep children safe online

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.
