49 Belmont Street,
Did you know that almost 1 in 4 of 4-11 year olds and 3 in 4 of 12-15 year olds has a social media profile?*
Created by Into Film, in association with Childnet International, Wellbeing: Staying Safe Online training will introduce you to the importance of cyber-safety for an online generation. You will take part in a range of active film watching and practical filmmaking tasks which can be used to support discussion on themes, issues and questions about ways to stay safe online.
This vital topic will be explored through short and feature film texts, analysing appropriate behaviours and actions of the characters, as well as investigating real life contexts such as questioning what information we choose to share online versus in the real world.
The session is a part of Into Film's Wellbeing Training, which also includes Mindfulness on Film and Anti-Bullying. Film is a powerful tool for developing empathy, exploring impact and discussing difficult issues faced by the character all at a level removed from issues that a pupil may be facing themselves.
