Crossing the Line

Online Safety, PSHE | KS3

This toolkit is comprised of four films and accompanying lesson plans which explore the idea of ‘Crossing the line’. Young people like to push boundaries, and at times they might take a joke too far or engage in risky behaviour online. From behind a screen, they can’t always predict the consequences of their actions. Through discussion and activities, this toolkit challenges young people to not only reflect on their own behaviour online and discover what ‘crosses the line’ for them, but so they also know who and how to report when/if aspects of their online lives go wrong. The purpose of this toolkit is to help educators generate discussion among young people about their online experience. Using the short films as a spring board, the toolkit covers relevant topics such as cyberbullying, sexting, peer pressure and self-esteem.
