Trust Me by Childnet

Trust Me by Childnet

Trust Me by Childnet is a set of five lesson plans for primary and secondary schools that focus on counter-extremism, critical thinking skills and online safety.

The two lesson plans for primary schools cover critical thinking around content (such as websites, blogs, online adverts and search results) and contact (how others online may attempt to persuade us to follow a link, download a file or engage in other behaviour). The three lessons for secondary schools cover both content and contact but also propaganda.

The lessons aim to help pupils to:

  • Recognise differences between fact and opinion online.
  • Develop skills to critically evaluate the trustworthiness of online content.
  • Understand different propaganda techniques and recognise their use in online content.
  • Recognise why others online may contact them to influence/persuade, and their possible motives.
  • Engage in discussion about what they see and experience online.

 

The lesson plans are free to download on the Childnet website

 

PSHE Association Subject Specialist Jenny Fox says:

“This lesson pack allows teachers to explore the concept of trust in an online environment. Through the use of carefully crafted examples, students learn to think critically about the information they are presented with online, and are encouraged to decipher fact from opinion, advertisement from propaganda, and opportunity from risk. These lessons use relevant, realistic and challenging activities to explore key safeguarding messages about who and what to trust online, at a time when young people are learning to navigate an increasingly online world.

The PSHE Association is pleased to award the quality mark to this resource as we consider it to be at the forefront of current thinking about the types of knowledge and skills young people need to develop through PSHE in order to face the challenges of modern life.”
