European Safer Internet Day : very good initiative !


Today, at the occasion of the European Safer Internet Day, I’ve taken  part to an Employee Volunteering action together with my Belgian colleagues.

I’ve visited the school of my kids. By the way, this was also my school 🙂

This was a great opportunity to explain how to surf safely on the Internet.

I’ve trained 4th, 5th and 6th year of primary school and general feedback was very positive and I’m sure this day was really useful for the kids but also for the parents who will recieve additional information on this.

Internet is an excellent place for kids to learn, explore, play games and communicate with friends and family.

Still, there are some risks that children, teenagers and parents need to look out for when surfing the Web. 

These could include online fraud and identity theft, cyber bullying, or risks to their personal computer or device.  But, there are some tips and tricks that kids and parents can learn to help protect themselves, their families, and their computers when they go online. EU Safer Internet Day is all about creating awareness about this, and provides a great opportunity for Microsoft employee volunteers to teach children and parents at schools about how they can make the most of using the internet in a safe and responsible way.
