Managing your online wellbeing: Safer Internet Day Remote Activities

As we adapt to remote learning environments, managing our online wellbeing has never been more important.

Our online wellbeing can be influenced by the content we see, the interactions we have, the choices we make, and even how long we spend using technology and the internet. This year, as we spend even more time online it is important to make time to consider how going online can influence the way we feel, think, and behave.

The theme for Safer Internet Day 2021 is online wellbeing and digital resilience, and the Webwise Youth Advisory Panel have created a list of ideas and activities that you could do to promote it as part of your #SID2021 campaign.
