You are going to use the Safer Internet Template to show your ideas for creating #AnInternetWeTrust.

Download the image and add your ideas. There are some things to think about after the Picture.

Questions to ask when you are looking at information online, for example: Who wrote this? Why was it written?

Words or questions we can ask to help us spot if something is reliable online.

Illustrations of what a better, more trustworthy internet could look like. Or images of online clues that may make something seem less reliable or trustworthy.

Pledges of what you will do to help create a more trustworthy internet, such as, “I will only share things I have checked are true” or “I will support my friends if fake news upsets them.”

You can fill in the #AnInternetWeTrust hashtag template in any way you like!
