Create, Connect & Share Respect! A Better Internet Starts With You!

 

Today is Safer Internet Day. Using the internet has become a major part of most peoples' lives. Most of us  spend more time staring at our screens, than reading books or taking part in sporting activities. With this in mind, it is important that we all treat the internet with respect when we use it. 

This year the Safer Internet Campaign is focusing on using the internet thoughtfully and treating other users with respect. Online 'trolling' or sending negative comments to another person via social media is a big cause of issues in schools, and also causes a lot of upset and heartache for the victims. Sometimes it is easy to say things online that you would never dream of saying to the person's face. So let's think before we 'send' a comment, and ask ourselves.."Am I treating others as I would like to be treated?"
