CyberSense: A skill-based approach to tackling cyberbullying and online safety
Year of production: 2020
‘CyberSense’ is made up of three skills-based modules, ‘De-escalating Conflict’, ‘Asking for help’, and ‘Empowering bystanders’. Each is built around short films depicting cyberbullying and was developed through consultation with young people and reflects their real-life experiences. Each film ends on an open question designed to promote discussion and teachers are provided with a range of activities designed to build young people’s language, communication, and resilience skills. The most important of these are role-play activities that provide opportunities to practice the skills required to de-escalate conflict, ask for help, and intervene as a bystander.
