This Primary Anti-Cyber Bullying Teachers’ Handbook is an SPHE resource developed to engage 5th and 6th class primary school students on the topic of cyber bullying. A series of short animations are the centrepiece of the resource. These will help students develop the skills and understanding to be responsible, socially conscious and effective internet users, as they explore social networks for the first time.
Developed with the ICCL, ThinkB4UClick is specifically designed for teachers of Junior Certificate CSPE. ThinkB4UClick explores the issue of online privacy in the context of online rights and responsibilities. The ultimate aim of this resource is to empower students to be effective, autonomous and safe users of new media.
Delivered by community gardai, as part of the Garda Schools Programme, the “Respectful Online Communication” talks are pitched at 5th class students. They cover a range of topics including cyberbullying and general online safety and security.
Developed with the Garda Schools Programme, the “Connect with Respect” pack helps students in post-primary schools understand the impact that cyber bullying can have on different people, and to recognise that cyber bullying, is not acceptable.
