Tuesday 6 February is Safer Internet Day!

SIDN thinks those are important issues. So we're backing Safer Internet Day by giving away books packed with facts about the internet. Get your child to answer our prize question for a chance to win a copy of WWW.wat? or NL Digitaal.Learn all about the internet!

Learn all about the internet!!

For today's youngsters, the internet is an integral part of everyday life. But children can't always create safe on-line environments for themselves, and they sometimes lack important skills. So the Safer Internet Days are being organised to encourage children, young people, parents and carers, teachers and social workers, as well as politicians, administrators and businesses to work together on building a better internet. Because making the internet better for children is a responsibility that everyone shares.

SIDN is supporting the initiative by running a competition for children and young people. By answering a prize question, primary school children have the chance to win a copy of WWW.wat? The book answers seventy questions that children often ask about the internet. Youngsters at senior school can win NL Digitaal, which explains fifty key aspects of the digital world. Both books are in Dutch.
