Andorra Telecom

Once again, this year we’re holding training and outreach sessions for children, young people and families across the country.

On 7 February, on the occasion of International Safer Internet Day, an event promoted by the INSAFE/INHOPE (Better internet for kids) network and supported by the European Commission, we’re once again organising “Good Internet use week”.

The aim is to continue to work closely with this awareness-raising activity and to train children, young people, families and teachers in Andorra in good practices in use of the Internet, achieving a greater impact and more relevance by holding all the training in a single week.

Specifically, in this second year, with the cooperation of the Ministry of Education and Higher Education of the Government of Andorra, we’re addressing students in all the phases of education (nursery, primary, secondary, baccalaureate and vocational training). And the teachers and families of Andorra.

We’ve proposed a set of activities at the schools of the three public and private education systems with the aims of contributing to the fight against cyberbullying and promoting good practices in the use of information and communication technology in a face-to-face and online format, with workshops to be delivered by the classroom tutors, teachers and families. This proposal is in response to the fact that year after year it’s becoming clear that there’s major concern about screen addiction.
