The Education Authority (EA) is proud to support Safer Internet Day on 11th February 2020.
Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre, Safer Internet Day is celebrated all over the world, and hundreds of organisations get involved to help promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.
In the lead up to Safer Internet Day, EA has distributed learning materials to schools to inform and empower teachers, pupils and parents to be responsible, respectable and safe online.
