Safer Internet Day is organised by Insafe each year in February to promote safer and more responsible use of online technology and mobile phones, especially amongst children and young people across the world.

On Tuesday 8th February, Ireland are joining with 65 countries around the world by marking Safer Internet Day 2011. The main objective of Safer Internet Day 2011 is to bring together relevant organisations, in as many countries as possible, to raise awareness about safe and responsible use of internet technologies especially among children and young people.

This year in Ireland parents are being called on to “Get Webwise !– Get Involved!”. Webwise on Facebook has been developed to support parents to start the conversation with their children about what they do online: www.facebook.com/webwise. The Webwise Facebook presence is to help parents to get involved in
what their children are doing online. It contains internet safety parenting videos, interactive games,  advice and tools. Please add your resources to this repository by posting links on the Wall.
