Today Steven started his ‘Webwise Safer Internet Training Programme’ with webwise.
Who are webwise I hear you say?
“Webwise is the Irish Internet Safety Awareness Centre. We develop resources and run campaigns that promote a better internet. Jane, Tracey and Aideen make up the Webwise team and you’ll get to hear from/meet us at the webinar.
We also work with a Youth Panel to develop different campaigns. This Youth Panel is made up of around 30 teenagers from all over Ireland. It was their idea to have a Safer Internet Day (SID) Ambassadors Programme to help more people and schools get involved in tackling cyberbullying. Some of them will be involved in this programme.”
Steven has a very busy schedule ahead. Today Steven got to log on and join all of the ambassadors on a two hour webinar. He will now go away and brainstorm ideas with all of the SID Ambassadors. He will attend a SID Ambassadors training day out at Google Head Quarters, in the new year. He will lead a campaign raising the awareness about using the Internet safely. On February 5th Steven will hold an event in school. I’ve been told I can’t say anymore than this!
We wish Steven the best of luck. Please give Steven your best wishes and encouragement.
Congratulations and well done!
