Resources encourage students to explore issues of online identity

How young people manage their identity online is to be the focus for the next Safer Internet Day, with organisers offering a range of new resources for schools.

The annual event takes place on February 11, 2020, and with three months to go the resources have been launched to coincide with Anti-Bullying Week this week.

The resources aim to help young people explore how the internet shapes the way they view themselves and others, and the extent to which the internet helps young people to experiment and express themselves.

Free to download, they also consider how offline stereotypes and discrimination are challenged or reinforced online.

The resources are in four age ranges, with packs for pupils aged three to seven, seven to 11, 11 to 14, and 14 to 18. They include posters, films and quick activities which are easy to organise and there is associated guidance for teachers as well as parents and carers.
