Education pack

education pack, lessons, worksheets

This has been designed for students in S1 to S3 and can be used as part of your Citizenship programme, or your core Personal Social Development (PSD) programme.

The pack includes the following;

  • One DVD disc
  • Notes for you, the teacher
  • Lesson Plans for FOUR lessons
  • Worksheets for FOUR lessons

The lessons are designed to be taught either over a two week or a four week period, in other words you can either teach one or two lessons per week. Each lesson has EXTENSION WORK for more able students as well as suggestions regarding DIFFERENTIATION for weaker students.

You know your class better than anyone, so the pack is also intended to be modified in the light of this knowledge. Teachers are encouraged to ADD or REMOVE content in order to make the programme more suitable for their students.

teaching aims and objectives

At the end of the programme your students should have achieved the following targets:

  1. Students have a better understanding of the potential dangers of certain aspects of new technology
  2. Students can feel more comfortable and confident when using new technology
  3. Students have enjoyed and engaged with the lessons and find them useful and informative

We hope that you enjoy teaching these lessons, and that you will use this resource again in the future with other year groups.

the dvd

This film was commissioned by the Safe Technology group for use in schools in Seychelles. It is not available to schools in any other country. The film was made by Café Society, an educational film-making company in the UK. It was directed by Jon Robson and written by Jon in collaboration with members of the Safe Technology group.

The film focuses on the potential hazards of

  • making contacts with strangers on the internet, for example using chat rooms. It stresses the point that people sometimes pretend to be other than they really are in order to establish contact with children and possibly even meet them.
  • posting inappropriate material on the internet, for example on a personal blog which can then be accessed by anyone anywhere in the world
  • filming, or allowing to be filmed, inappropriate behaviour using a mobile phone

The film features three brief staged segments featuring actors. There are also information sections and a brief discussion section featuring young Seychellois.

lesson plans

These have been written in a common ‘grid’ format, with clear aims and objectives, resources required, time allocation for each section of the lesson, assessment and evaluation indicators.

There are four lessons in the programme;

The first lesson is called ‘Eyes Around the World’ and encourages students to think about the way in which internet content can be accessed and duplicated globally. The lesson focuses on the way in which this might have a negative effect on a student who has either posted personal information or images on the internet or has had (perhaps without his or her knowledge and consent) material about them posted by someone else.

The second lesson is called ‘Sex, Racism, Lies and Violence’, a deliberately provocative title. The lesson looks at inappropriate web content and ways in which students can protect themselves from offensive and dangerous material.

The third lesson is called ‘When You Go To Work’ and informs students about the way in which their use of Information Technology at work will be controlled and, if they abuse their use of it, what action might be taken against them by their employer and even the police.

The fourth lesson is called ‘Protect Yourself’ and ties up the various strands of the previous three lessons in order to get a strong message across to students about how they can best protect themselves and their families from some of the negative aspects of new technology.
