What is positive online content?

We define it as "digital content aimed at children, which enables them to learn, have fun, create, enjoy, develop a positive view of themselves and respect for their identity, enhance their participation in society and produce and distribute their own positive content."

September 2019 was Positive Online Content Awareness Month, but positive content is important all year round.

Stay safe with positive online content through the festive season

Children are using digital content and services more and more, and especially during the ongoing pandemic to stay connected with family and friends, for schoolwork and learning, but also for fun and entertainment when many other activities cannot take place. Positive online experiences through child-friendly digital offerings play a more important role than ever before.

New HTML Heroes first and second-class online safety programme is launched

“HTML Heroes: Welcome to the Internet” was officially launched in September 2021 by the Irish Minister for Education, Norma Foley TD. She commented: “To best equip children and young people to make the most of the internet, we need to begin from an early age. Like road safety, children need to know the basics of accessing the internet, how to use it effectively and safely, and to know what to do if something goes wrong and where to get help and assistance. It is my hope that this new programme from Webwise will help teachers and school staff build these foundations with pupils in an age-appropriate manner. Through colourful illustrations, stories and an online safety code that reinforces key safety messages, the new HTML Heroes Programme for first and second class is an excellent starting point for children”.
