Thought-provoking resources to promote informed discussions about staying safe online

Safer Internet Day (SID), celebrated this year on 5 February, is the perfect time to talk to your KS3 or KS4 class about both the benefits and dangers of using the internet.

To help to get students thinking about how to look after themselves online, we’ve selected a range of our most popular lesson ideas, activities, discussion starters and guides. These can be used as complete lessons or as jumping off points for wider discussion of these very important issues.

Teachers TV: KS3/4 ICT - Online Safety

Children need to stay safe on-line and teachers can take practical steps to increase awareness of the dangers. Three simple classroom activities can help here. E-safety consultant Dr Alan Beecham visits Rhodesway Secondary School in Bradford to work with a group of Year 9 students. Dr Beecham, Haroon Gardee, a humanities teacher, and Year 7 Inclusion Manager Max Crowther gauge pupils' reaction to a ficticious profile they created on a social networking site. The second activity highlights the dangers of sharing too much information, and the third focuses on security and privacy settings. At Stocksbridge High School in Sheffield e-safety officers apply a 'safe use of the internet' policy, run parental awareness evenings, and act as a point of contact for pupils.

E-safety scenario cards

I tend to use these with a Kagan cooperative learning structure (usually 'Showdown' or 'Numbered Heads Together'). See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gVvn7G792jI to see how the 'Showdown' structure works.
