To mark the launch of Safer Internet Day 2016, We hosted a symposium on ‘Sexting and the Consequences for Schools’. The aim of this event was to support schools dealing with the complex issues around explicit self-generated images of minors. Experts from the legal profession, law enforcement, curriculum and policy all shared their knowledge on this important topic.
Lockers is a new information and education resource. It assists schools in coping with and preventing the sharing of explicit self-generated images of minors. Intended for use with Junior Cycle SPHE classes, Lockers is supported by a newly developed animation and six lesson plans. Also included in Lockers is an information section for school leaders.
