Cyber bullying takes place over digital devices including mobile phones, computers, and tablets and can occur through a variety of means (text messages, apps, or online in social media, forums, or gaming where people can view, participate in, or share content); some adults use the internet to groom young people for sexual gratification, to join gangs and become involved in criminal and other risky behaviour.
Learning to navigate the internet safety is crucial to young people’s development and taking part in this module and becoming a Web Warrior will ensure that they remain confident and safe online.
Web Warriors will use the same tried and tested format as our DARE Primary and DARE 25 programmes.
Students will meet Michael and through the video will see how easily he is drawn into a risky situation. Using the worksheet and through discussion and interactive activities the students will learn how to manage such situations themselves. The class will use our DARE DECISION MAKING MODEL and consider pressure, peer pressure and risks and consequences and will also discuss the law as it relates to online activity.
DARE to be safe and healthy.
