Kate Valentine, who co-developed the Safe resources for DigitalMe was invited in by Sky News to talk about the programme on the Saturday morning breakfast news.
Safe is a programme of practical activities that develop young people's skills, self-confidence and safety awareness when using social networking sites. Designed to work on safe social networks, the free materials and teacher resources will enable a school to easily deliver engaging activities and develop digital literacy skills.
