Toolkits for online delivery (Secondary)

Our original online safety toolkits for face-to-face learning contain 15 minute activities which support young to understand unhealthy behaviours online, and seek help when they need it. We have adapted these toolkits for delivery online.

New formats available include:

  • Editable PowerPoint slides with lesson notes
  • Editable Google Slides with lesson notes

Please note, some activities from the original toolkits have been removed or amended to ensure all content can be safely delivered online.

The activities cover themes such as:

  • online friendships
  • social networking
  • sharing pictures and videos
  • gaming

Delivering the online safety toolkits remotely

Whether you are teaching face to face or in a virtual classroom, it’s important that you take steps to ensure children are protected.

Our adapted toolkits have been designed with online learning in mind and are suitable for the age-groups for which they are intended to be used. However, it is recommended that professionals look through the toolkits prior to delivery to ensure that the content is suitable for the age and stage of the children they work with. The slides can be edited and adapted to suit the needs of young learners.

SAFER INTERNET DAY

I work with young people training and information

Safer Internet Day 2021 celebrates the amazing range of information and opportunities online, and its potential to inform, connect and inspire us, whilst also looking at how young people can separate fact from fiction.

The campaign focuses on how we can know what to trust online, supporting young people to question, challenge and change the online world. It will explore how influence, persuasion and manipulation can impact young people’s decisions, opinions and what they share online.

To help educators to deliver practical and impactful activities for Safer Internet Day we have created a range of free resources, including; films, lesson plans, assemblies, quick activities and more!

See our available resources below by clicking on the age group that you work with. You will also see links for information about working with parents and carers, and what your organisation can do to get involved.
