E-Safety - understanding how encryption works

E-Safety - understanding how encryption works

I’ve created this resource for a group of learners with learning difficulties. Following a review where the language used was too complicated I’ve added a simplified version and the pub file (in comic sans), as well as two simple questionnaires… Staying safe online and how encryption works is hard to explain, so I’ve tried to demonstrate these in a simple and accessible way. The resource contains 7 pages, and it takes the learners through a short and simple journey in understanding how to keep away from fraudulent online content. The resource can be used as part of an E-Safety lesson or in an assembly.

Social Media Curriculum KS4

Social Media Curriculum KS4

A bespoke curriculum for KS4 on the topic Social Media. The unit contains 4 lesson plans (each lesson available in 15 minute, 30 minute or 60 minute format). Each lesson begins with a short 3-5 minute film to engage in the topic and then explores a range of questions and discussion points, encouraging students to develop critical thinking and empathy skills. Lessons contain a range of multi-media resources to support learning ideas and contain clear instructions to guide through the lesson. Lessons have been designed to complement SMSC learning objectives and match core National Curriculum PSHE specifications in value-based learning. Focused on tolerance, respect and global citizenship, lessons allow students to explore their own opinions and values, make connections to those around them and practice listening and empathic engagement. QUESTIONS EXPLORED • How has social media changed the way we interact with each other? • Are we becoming more or less social as technology allows us to make friends all over the world? • Is technological connection allowing us to feel more connected? • What is the ‘filter bubble’ and how is it affecting our understanding of the world? • Are ‘fake news’ and algorithmic conditioning something that we can prevent? • Is social media a tool that we can learn to use rather than depend upon? AIMS AND OBJECTIVES Each lesson starts with a short film which serves as the platform for the lesson’s discussions, allowing students to engage firstly with the ideas raised in the film and then develop insight and engagement in the topic. Students will practise skills of critical thinking & questioning, deep listening and empathy building. Lessons will explore the pros and cons of global connectivity through social media, examining the human and environmental impact of this growing technology. Students will examine the changing nature of connection in a modern world, learning to question and engage in a range of connections that we are forming through our use of social media.
