Message Groups and Cyberbullying – Internet Safety Press & Play Lesson

by | Jan 8, 2021

Many schools experience challenges around how their students behave in message groups on WhatsApp. 

It could start with an in-joke or banter that goes too far and becomes cyberbullying, or when students write messages in groups without really thinking about the further consequences of their actions. 

That’s why we created Message Groups and Cyberbullying – Press & Play Lesson.

Your students will meet the character of Sophie and hear her story about how her friends start cyberbullying another student at her school in a message group.

Will Sophie join in? Or will she make the brave decision to play her part to stop cyberbullying from happening at her school?

This video led lesson includes monologues performed by actors to bring the learning to life for your students. 

The lesson helps students achieve learning outcomes identified in Education for a Connected World framework 2020.

Learning Outcomes: 

  • I can give examples of how bullying behaviour could appear online.
  • I can identify ways of getting support if I see or experience cyberbullying.
  • I can describe how to capture bullying content as evidence (e.g screen-grab, URL, profile) to share with others who can help me.
  • I understand the psychological and emotional impacts of cyberbullying.
  • I understand how cyberbullying can start and progress in a message group.

Our Press & Play Lessons are completely video led, so they are ideal for remote learning. We know that teachers and parents are often short on time. That’s why we designed the lesson to be easy to use and easy to access.

It comes with everything included, so all you need to do to teach the lesson is simply press play and enjoy!

The lesson can be used easily as part of your online learning provisions, and students can access this content at home.
