Stop Cyberbullying Day is an internationally recognized day of awareness and activities both on and offline that was founded and launched by The Cybersmile Foundation on June 17th 2012. Annually, every third Friday in June, Stop Cyberbullying Day encourages people around the world to show their commitment toward a truly inclusive and diverse online environment for all – without fear of personal threats, harassment or abuse.
Purple Mash has a wealth of resources to support schools in promoting an inclusive internet and kindness both on and offline, for children, parents and teachers. We have mapped our resources from Early Years to Year 6 to the framework: Education for a connected world with Purple Mash. This framework includes eight different aspects of online education.
On June 19th, there are a range of resources that children can use to promote an inclusive internet. Using our Digital Citizenship template they can create a leaflet about rules and behaviours when participating online, thinking about their Digital Footprint they can edit this 2Connect file to create a representation of their own digital footprint and use this template to write about keeping an appropriate digital footprint. They could also create a poster to help other children informing them of where they can get support with online safety issues. It is important for children to think about what may be influencing them online and what information they should be sharing, they can use this template to write what they know about terms such as mis-information, scepticism and influence and persuasion. Why not get them to try our Online Communications Quiz, Internet Safety Quiz or ask them to use 2Quiz to create their own quiz thinking about Online Behaviours
There are a range of Online Safety activities within 2Respond, from helping a friend who is being bullied, to sharing confidential information and dealing with prejudice that can occur online, all of these simulated emails can be set as 2Dos.
