SID Ambassador Training Day 2023
Preparations are in full swing for Safer Internet Day 2023 on Tuesday, February 7th. One of the highlights of Safer Internet Day is the SID Ambassador Training Programme! On the 17th of January, Webwise hosted the Safer Internet Day Ambassador Training Day in Google HQ. Over 140 students from across Ireland gathered together to learn new skills and activities to help them plan and prepare for running their own online safety awareness raising campaign in their schools and communities.
The SID Trainers, who are also members of the Webwise Youth Advisory Panel, led students through icebreakers and then moved onto a series of prescribed Webwise workshops which reflect this year’s Safer Internet Day theme “Promoting respect and empathy online”.
The in-person training day forms one part of the blended Programme which also sees students attend online webinars to help equip them with the knowledge and skills to lead their own campaigns.
Everyone can play a role in promoting respect and empathy online, find out more about how you can get involved by visiting our Safer Internet Day Hub!
