UP2US Anti-bullying Activity - Interactive Posters

http://www.watchyourspace.ie/leading-the-interactive-poster-activity/ Added: 03 Mar 2016 Contributor: Webwise Resource type: Audio / Video / Lesson Plan

The interactive poster activity is a fun and easy way of spreading anti-bullying messages while making positive, creative and innovative use of technology. Using the poster grids, stickers and cut-out shapes provided in the Kit young people can design colourful posters with anti-bullying slogans.

The idea is that these posters will then be made interactive when students share a photograph of their poster on social media. This will contribute to creating a positive anti-bullying culture on social media sites using messages generated by young people and disseminated amongst their peers.

Just For Fun

https://vimeo.com/160080883 Added: 29 Mar 2016 Contributor: Webwise Resource type: Audio / Video

Just For Fun is a short animation addressing the issue of peer pressure and non-consensual sharing of images. It forms part of a new resource created to assist schools in coping with and preventing the sharing of explicit self-generated images of minors. Lockers comprises 6 lesson plans, two animations and information for school leaders.

Lessons focus specifically on the laws around sexting, on the peer pressure and stereotyping that can contribute to non-consensual sharing and on how students can get help when incidents of non-consensual sharing occur. One of the lessons also explores the practice of victim-blaming, through the For Your Eyes Only animation.

Non-consensual sharing and subsequent victim blaming can be as a result of a number of harmful gender stereotypes, media influences and peer pressure. This lesson gives students an opportunity to analyse the influence of peers in incidents of non-consensual sharing through the Just For Fun animation. Students can debate how peer pressure can contribute to the prevalence of non-consensual sharing of intimate content and a culture of victim blaming.
