Originally published as part of the Insafe’s 2012 Back to School campaign, the following lesson plans are based on the theme of 'Online rights and responsibilities'.
Primary Lesson Plan
This lesson was originally part of a series of teacher’s notes which accompany a game produced by the Council of Europe called Through the Wild Web Woods. It has been adapted for the Insafe Back2School Campaign 2012. It encourages children to think about their rights and how these should be applied to the internet.
Secondary Lesson Plans
The secondary lesson plan is in two parts and it is suggested that these be conducted over two separate lessons. The first, like the primary plan, encourages the students to think about their rights and which of these are most relevant to new media. The second then looks at how the students can safeguard and promote these online rights.
These lessons were adapted from the Think B4U Click resource developed by the Irish National Centre for Technology in Education.
Again originally published as part of the Insafe’s 2012 Back to School campaign, this poster lists six key rights for students to bear in mind whensurfing the internet. The poster is available for download in three different sizes, including A3 as a classroom poster and A5 for use in books, while a translated version is also available from our colleagues in Lithuania.
Why not get your students to produce similar posters – devising their own set of key rights – as an awareness-raising activity in the classroom?
Once again originally published as part of the Insafe’s 2012 Back to School campaign, this resource provides a quick overview of both new and pre-existing tools, in order to help teachers use YouTube safely in the classroom such as community guidelines and reporting mechanisms, and the recently launched Digital Citizenship Curriculum.
Coming soon - availability of the YouTube Curriculum in additional languages and a Teacher Certification Programme. Please continue to check the YouTube Curriculum site for updates.
