Safer Internet Day 2017: Design your own Emoji
Parental involvement highly recommended.
Children, if you are doing this alone, go and get a parent. They might need to learn how to do these types of things too!!
This Safer Internet Day we want to empower children to have a positive time online and inspire everyone to ‘Be the change’ and use the positive power of image to help create a better internet.
Parents: please use this opportunity to get up to date on what your children already know about browsing, downloading and communicating via the internet. Ask them about their experiences, discuss the importance of staying safe and look up how to do this together. Use this time to check your parental control settings and access rights your children have, explaining that these are good things to ensure your children can have a safe and positive experience online. Discuss how they communicate using technology and ensure they understand the importance of ‘what to share’ with the focus mainly on images.
You can download a PDF design sheet to print and a PNG design sheet to save and edit at the bottom of this page.
You can then choose to print out the form and complete the design by hand. However, the design must be entered electronically. You may take a photo or scan the image and then attach it to an email.
