Today is Safer Internet Day and across the world a number educators and organisations will work with students to explore the theme of ‘Online Rights and Responsibilities – Connect with Respect’.
To coincide with the day, the Irish association Webwise have launched Promise, a thought provoking video exploring the impact of comments online. Whilst the video does touch on the damage caused by negative online comments, the piece also explores the power of communities and the potential of the web. It’s well worth a look, and would be a great conversation starter in your class today. You can watch Promise below and find other resources on the Webwise site.
