Oh yes! It’s early February again, and that means a full week of activities around better internet on Momio! As proud and official partners for Finland’s Media Literacy Week, and to celebrate the world wide Safer Internet Day, we’re challenging kids on Momio to talk about better internet – what it means and how to make everyone strive towards it. We have done this every year since Momio was launched, and it’s one of our favourite traditions.
This year we wanted to add a fun twist. The kids on Momio are following a treasure map that reveals one fun competition every day. The week was kicked off on Monday with encouraging momios to create pictures of people having fun online. Later in the week, momios will be challenged to explain internet things to the elderly and to test if we all interpret emojis the same way.
On Sunday, the week will end with an incredible challenge that allows everyone to be nice to others in a fun way. We’d love to tell you what it is, but there’s no fun in spoiling the surprise! 😉
We’ll follow up next week with the best bits from the activities! We also share them on our social media channels throughout the week.
Safer Internet Day
Today is Safer Internet Day. It’s celebrated in over 140 countries around the world, all ten Momio countries included, and this year’s theme is “Together for a better internet”. It’s a perfect match for Momio, so we started the day by asking what each and every kid on Momio can do to make the internet better place. Some of our favourite quotes so far are:
We can take responsibility and initiative in that everyone should respect others online. That way internet will be safe for us all.
You can be a rolemodel and a good example. Be nice to others, and you play your part for a happier and safer internet (:
We at Momio work towards better internet every day. We’re in this business to make a difference, and by challenging kids to think about what they and others can do to make the internet better, we do our part in raising a generation of well-informed, skilled and safe internet users.
