Lesson 1: Online Sexual Coercion and Exploitation Is A Crime
Please note: this lesson can be spread over two lessons as opposed to one. Alternatively, it can be used in a one hour class.

- This lesson can be used by the SPHE teacher in the classroom or by Gardaí visiting junior cycle students in the SPHE class. For information on how to access this visit, contact your local Garda station or the Garda Schools Programme.
- +Learning Outcomes
- Learning outcomes: Students will be able to understand and define online sexual coercion and extortion, and will begin to consider how they can protect themselves online and the steps that can be taken when young people are affected by this crime.
