It is important kids learn about the way relationships evolve online. You want students to feel comfortable participating in the world of social media, and other online forums. In this module, we provide you with the tools and resources to help students understand how language, truthfulness, perception, and dynamics of online communication can shape their safety and the wellbeing of others.

Understand the importance of consent, including the rights of others, why inappropriate content is linked to consent, how to spot when someone is being coerced or intimated, the value in being able to say “no” or “stop”, and more.
How friendship extends to how they treat others, helping friends navigate problems by asking them questions and listening, identifying inappropriate online friendships (like grooming), and more.
The good and bad sides of social media, protecting personal information, what respectful communication looks like (whether or not they are anonymous), and strategies to deal with harassment or cyberbullying, and more.
