Safer Internet Day 2017

Each year, Safer Internet Day (7 February 2017) helps to raise awareness of the safe, responsible and positive use of technology by young people around the world. Vodafone supports this important initiative and encourages everyone to unite for a better internet throughout the year.

Be Strong Online

Schools play a vital role in helping young people to explore the digital world confidently and safely. That’s why Vodafone and young people’s charity The Diana Award have produced 10 teaching modules to help students be strong online.

Digital Parenting magazine

Millions of families have received Vodafone’s Digital Parenting magazine for free since 2010 and issue 5 (October 2016) is out now!

Available online and given for free to schools and other organisations that work with young people, it’s packed with information and advice about bullying, peer pressure, screen time and much more. Why not take a look right now?

My Tech Family

My Tech Family aims to get the whole family involved in technology by helping you to explore the digital world together.

Developed by Vodafone and Parent Zone, My Tech Family provides lesson plans and other resources for primary schools that extend beyond the classroom, enabling parents and children to enjoy digital activities together at home. It’s a fun way to spend time together and also start the all-important conversation about online safety.

How about getting together as a family to spend some time online together?

From making a movie to building a game, researching a family tree to planning a journey, these activities are designed to help your children learn and have fun with the rest of the family at the same time.

Vodafone has worked with Parent Zone on Digital Parenting, My Tech Family and other initiatives.

Check out the Parent Zone website and email them at info@parentzone.org.uk to find out how your child’s school can sign up to My Tech Family.

If you’re a primary school teacher, there are lots of free My Tech Family resources available for download.

Register with Parent Zone at info@parentzone.org.uk to get access to presentations, lesson plans and workbooks so that you can help your students explore the digital world safely at school and when they get home.
