In highlight - free online safety films
Posted on 01 November 2019
At Childnet we know that a great way to cement online safety learning for young people is through video content. In this blog we are highlighting some of our key, free resources that address online safety issues with engaging video content.
5 online safety cartoons for 7 to 11 year olds.
These cartoons illustrate 5 e-safety SMART rules and include a real life SMART Crew of young people, who guide the cartoon characters in their quest, and help them make safe online decisions.
A cyberbullying film for 11 to 15 year olds.
Let’s Fight It Together is our award winning film Let's Fight It Together, that helps sensitise people to the hurt and pain that can be caused by cyberbullying. The film shows ways in which cyberbullying can occur, who it involves, how it can affect different people, and what can be done to prevent it and respond to it.
Covering key online safety issues for 11 to 14 year olds
Our practical online safety PSHE toolkit with films and lesson plans to explore online issues with pupils aged 11-14 years old. In 2016 we initial released individual films and PSHE learning resources addressing cyberbullying, sexting, peer pressure and self-esteem.
In 2019 we created the second PSHE toolkit, Myth vs Reality. With Relationship and Sex Education (RSE) becoming statutory in all schools from September 2020, schools need practical, thoughtful and helpful resources to help them teach RSE. We created this resource to address the issues of online pornography, healthy relationships and body image.
Tackling peer based sexual harassment among 13-17 year olds
Step Up, Speak Up! Is our practical campaign toolkit to address the issue of online sexual harassment amongst young people aged 13 – 17 years. We have produced three short animated films for young people aged 13-17 to help identify, define and understand what online sexual harassment is.
These films set out to encourage the viewer to recognise that online sexual harassment is not acceptable and to take positive action if they see this happening.
Film 1: ‘What is online sexual harassment? Addresses what it is and how it can make someone feel.
Film 2: ‘Who would you tell if you saw online sexual harassment?’ delivers a clear message about the positive outcomes of reporting unacceptable behaviour, and the different people who you can make a report to.
Film 3: 'Put an end to online sexual harassment - what will you do?' Young people in the UK, Hungary and Denmark have come together to tackle online sexual harassment and what they need from adults to help them to put an end to it.
