Tirana September 30, 2019 – The National Authority for Electronic Certification and Cyber Security and Unicef Albania with the support of the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports and the Municipality of Tirana organized the activity “Together for a better Internet” at Kosova School.
The purpose of this activity was to raise the awareness of public and private institutions, parents and educators, to create the right mechanisms for a safer Internet for children and young people. Invited to this activity were Mrs. Anisa Ruseti, deputy mayor of Tirana Municipality, Regional Director for Europe and Central Asia, Mrs. Afshan Khan, Dr. Roberto De Bernardi representative of UNICEF in Albania and Mrs. Vilma Tomco, General Director of AKCESK.
The children shared with their peers the newest application, ‘ichild Quiz’ published on the official website of cesk.gov.al, where through the game they test their skills regarding safe internet issues.
The experience as small counselors, students of grades VI, VII, VIII in different regions of Albania benefited through trainings organized by AKCESK and UNICEF, where for the first time it was applied as practice in the format of a manual in children’s language for children. This handbook is helping children expand their knowledge and increase the skills needed to grow up in the digital age.
Raising awareness and building capacities among all segments of society for the safe use of the Internet by children is one of the main objectives of the Authority.
