The ‘Crossing the Line’ PSHE education toolkit encourages young people to reflect on their online behaviour, whilst also equipping them with the knowledge of how to respond to online safety issues, report any concerns and make positive choices.
‘Crossing the Line’ is free to download and has been created by internet safety charity Childnet as part of their role as the UK Safer Internet Centre. This toolkit – which contains a series of films and accompanying lesson plans – has achieved the PSHE Association Quality Mark for PSHE resources and will help teachers cover four key areas:
- Peer pressure
Although aimed at key stage 3 pupils, the teaching materials can easily be tailored to meet the needs of key stage 4. In addition, there are some activities which may be suitable for upper key stage 2.
The PSHE Association’s Subject Specialist Karen Summers says:
“This is a highly engaging resource which helps to equip pupils with the skills and attributes to reflect on the challenging choices and dilemmas they are faced with when their online behaviour ‘crosses the line’.
Each lesson plan provides comprehensive guidance for educators on how to address crucial online issues in a safe and positive learning environment. The toolkit would make a valuable addition to high quality PSHE education provision.”
