'Be Internet Citizens' lessons, KS3-4

banner for mental health resources


The PSHE Association has quality assured Be Internet Citizens, a set of five free lessons produced through a collaboration between Google, YouTube and the Institute for Strategic Dialogue (ISD). These materials support students to become better digital citizens by developing their critical thinking, media literacy and ability to assess the reliability of digital content.

The lessons explore:

  • how to identify online disinformation and misinformation
  • how filter bubbles and echo chambers affect the information we see
  • the impact of bias in writing and how bias is used online
  • the consequences of stereotyping, for individuals and society
  • freedom of speech and how to challenge online bullying or hate speech

These lessons will support schools to meet requirements to teach ‘Internet safety and harms’ and ‘Online and media’ outlined in statutory Relationships, RSE and Health Education guidance.

PSHE Association Subject Specialist Jenny Fox says:
“We are pleased to award our Quality Mark to these innovative lessons on promoting digital citizenship. The Be Internet Citizens lessons encourage students to think critically about the online media they consume, produce and share. By exploring the impact of misinformation, biased writing and filter bubbles, students recognise the consequences that ‘fake news’ can have. The lessons also encourage students to create inclusive, positive content. We are sure schools will enjoy exploring these materials.”
