HTML Heroes is a brand new internet safety programme for Primary schools from Webwise. It contains eight interactive lessons and three fun animations which is freely available to download. Introduce pupils to the internet and how it works while also considering online wellbeing and screen time.
This Primary Anti-Cyber Bullying Teachers’ Handbook is an SPHE resource developed to engage 5th and 6th class primary school students on the topic of cyber bullying. A series of short animations are the centrepiece of the resource. These will help students develop the skills and understanding to be responsible, socially conscious and effective internet users, as they explore social networks for the first time
Have students take out their phones and have a look at the last photos they took with friends. Then have the students use the Share or Delete checklist to help decide if these photos should be shared publicly online.
The Be in Ctrl resource focuses on the online sexual coercion and extortion of children by adults but this behaviour can also exist in a peers’ environment. The Be in Ctrl resource complements Lockers and both resources focus on educating pupils on appropriate online behaviour and developing a culture of reporting concerns while fostering empathy, respect and resilience. It is recommended Lockers is used in the SPHE class before the Be in Ctrl resource.
RTÉ Two Tube have created a series of advice videos from Irish YouTubers. Sinead Burke (MinnieMelange), Suzanne Jackson (SoSueMe), James Kavanagh (JamesKava), Clare Cullen (Clisare) and Paddy Smyth (Paddyysmyth) will all share tips and advice on safer internet use.
