Already a regular partner of the European GOW since 2011, the Information Society Development Foundation (Fundacja Rozwoju Społeczeństwa Informacyjnego – FRSI) coordinated Get Online Week 2016.
Young people participating in the Get Online Week 2016 campaign in Poland found out an easy and attractive way how to use social networks and other online services to build their professional image online and avoid common mistakes (LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, YouRock etc. as well as national social tools). Setting up a blog or video blog was presented as a method to develop interests and improve skills. Participants also found out how to use safely online services, especially social networks: for example, what threats were related with registering in not trusted services, which logins and passwords were safe, how to configure privacy settings on Facebook and other networks, what content shouldn’t be posted on the Internet, what might be the consequences, where they could find help if necessary.
Adults found out where and how they could buy safely goods and services online, which tools might help them, where they could get support and information on their rights.
FRSI collaborated with Nobody’s Children Foundation (FDN) and built a stronger cooperation with WIOSNA Association (literally SPRING Association), who was a partner in the previous GOW campaign in Poland. Business partners such as Microsoft, UPC, and Orange were also involved.
