Safer Internet Day 9th February 2021
The theme this year is...
An internet we trust: exploring reliability in the online world
The internet has an amazing range of information and opportunities online, but how do we separate fact from fiction?
We want to give children at Christ the King the skills to support one another, and the strategies to spot and speak out against harmful and misleading content online.
Through Safer Internet Day 2021 we will look at why inaccurate content exists, where it comes from, and what children can do to ensure they are safe.
‘Fake news’ has become one of the most commonly-used phrases in the media in recent years, but it means different things to different people. The general meaning of fake news is usually seen as being stories that have been made up or exaggerated, in an attempt to influence the way people think.
