Type of resource
8 short videos, 8 lesson plans
15 to 45 minutes per activity, each including a 1 to 2 minute video
Key learning areas
Students will better understand cyberbullying and image-based abuse, including when and how to seek help. They will be encouraged to consider and discuss these online harms, their impacts and the actions they can take against negative online behaviour.
By the end of the learning, students will:
- be able to define cyberbullying and image-based abuse
- understand the concept of ethical online behaviour
- critically analyse the impact their decisions and actions can have on themselves, their family members, the school community and others
- be familiar with relevant eSafety resources and services
- how to report cyberbullying and image-based abuse.
Using this resource
Select one of the eight award-winning short videos dealing with different cyberbullying scenarios and use the Lesson plan to lead a class discussion about it.
Each Lesson plan also includes instructions for exploring relevant eSafety resources and for an optional personal reflection activity.
The length of the lesson will depend on the aspects of cyberbullying in each video and the questions you choose to lead the group discussion.
NOTE: The Jarrod scenario also deals with the issue of image-based abuse, which means sharing intimate images or videos without the consent of the person shown.
You can’t undo the past, and you can’t change the actions or words of other people, but you can Rewrite Your Story.
