Samsung Electronics has announced that it is collaborating with Internet Matters to celebrate Anti-Bullying Week that is starting on the 15th and ending on the 19th of November this year and has "One Kind Word" as its theme.
On internetmatters.org, the Samsung microsite offers a wide array of resources for guardians and parents on how children can stay safe online with the help of connected devices. It also features The Online Together Project that acts as an interactive tool designed for various age groups, ranging from under 11's to 14+ year-olds.
The latest interactive tool has been developed by Samsung and Internet Matters to aid everyone in developing critical thinking skills and promote a positive online environment. The content that has been provided has also been assessed and backed by teachers and experts from Global Diversity Practice. The Online Together Project's first phase centered around managing gender stereotypes was introduced at the beginning of 2021.
The announcement from Samsung mentioned:
Gender stereotyping online can be harmful to young people’s mental health, and limit their opportunities. Therefore, The Online Together Project has been designed to help support young people, together with their parents and guardians, to defy these barriers online. Recognising and challenging gender stereotypes online encourages young people to create safe spaces to celebrate their differences, and to respect everyone!
