The pressures from social media - stimulus for PHSE

The pressures from social media - stimulus for PHSE

Lifefaker.com helps fake perfection on social media using the strapline “Life isn’t perfect. Your profile should be.” USEFUL FOR PHSE as stimulus material. The material may be used to kickstart sessions around the use of social media. THE PREMISE Instead of going to the trouble of living a perfect life, now you can just get the photos instead. Lifefaker.com ‘sells’ ready-made photo packages you can post as your own. These include The Look At My Holiday and Cry Package, The I Found Love and Babies Package, and The My Weekend Was Amazing Thanks Package. The site includes testimonials from real Lifefaker users. Ruby, 22, said she’s “never seemed happier”. THE REALITY However, anyone who tries to use Lifefaker.com will learn the real purpose of the project. Instead, they’ll receive a message from Sanctus, a mental health start-up. The site reminds us that we’ve all felt the pressures of social media – with 62% of people feeling inadequate comparing their lives to those online. The site users can click through to Sanctus.io for a film exploring the unhealthy behaviours on social media that impact our mental health, and what we can do to change them.

The Egyptians (Embedded/Alternative Education)

The Egyptians (Embedded/Alternative Education)

This resource has been created with hard to reach young people in mind. These resources have been used at The Island Project as part of vocational learning as a way of engaging young people who struggled with ADHD, Autism, SEMH and challenging behaviour. Most learners who attend our project are also struggling academically and therefore these materials are designed to allow tutors to scale the difficultly as desired. This bundle contains 6 project plans and is aimed at giving young people the opportunity of learning about Ancient Egypt in a less academic way through more hands on activities using arts and crafts, social play, woodwork, Lego and more. This range of sessions was delivered over a 6 week half term, each session being focused on per week.
