An online survey conducted by the Coalition for Media Literacy in Education, co-founded by the Bulgarian Safer Internet Centre and comprising almost 20 organisations, showed that students’ attitudes towards learning vary widely from “I prefer to go to school”, to “Learning online is fast and interesting”.
On 11th February, together with over 150 countries worldwide, Bulgaria celebrated the International Safer Internet Day. Dozens of Bulgarian schools and libraries organised various initiatives and activities with the motto: “Together for a better internet”.
ТDuring the National Safer Internet Day the Bulgarian SIC will start the celebrations by awarding the winners of the annual National Cyberscout Competition held amongst 10-12 year old students by the Centre. Three Cyberscout teams will be present to receive their awards for the first three places in the competition.
