Let's talk about porn - Selected projects for Safer Internet Day 2024

For Safer Internet Day (SID) on February 6, 2024, klicksafe is focusing on the topic "Let's talk about porn". Because young people easily come into contact with pornography online and they must not be left alone with it. The klicksafe handbook "Let's talk about porn" will be published in a completely revised version to coincide with the SID. It contains background information for teachers and specialists as well as specific practical projects and worksheets on the content modules "Life in puberty", "Ideals of beauty in our society", "Pornography online" and "Sexualized violence and digital boundary violations".

In "Let's talk about porn - Selected projects for Safer Internet Day 2024", you will get an initial insight into the handbook. You will first receive assistance before you delve into these sensitive topics. The selected projects, e.g. the interactive exercise "No-Gos in class chat", allow you to prepare your Safer Internet Day campaign now. Depending on the project, the project suggestions are suitable for young people aged 12 and over or 14 and over.

Artificial intelligence in schools

Since the release of ChatGPT around a year ago, more and more students have discovered generative AI as a practical helper in everyday school life. Discuss the critical and responsible use of AI tools with your students and agree on common rules for the classroom.

Whether it's a difficult math problem, a book summary or a presentation in history - ChatGPT provides impressive answers and quick solutions in many areas. But can you trust the AI-based chatbot? The klicksafe material "How reliable is ChatGPT?" provides educational professionals with an overview of the challenges that can arise when using the chatbot. Five teaching examples provide you with suggestions for using AI-based chatbots such as ChatGPT in the classroom or as part of extracurricular projects and discussing them with children and young people.

Everyone can benefit as much as possible from the advantages of generative AI tools if they can understand how they work and where the associated limits and risks lie. With "Stay safe! 5 tips for AI in everyday school life", we offer an information flyer for young people. In addition to a fact and source check of the generated content, the tips also include independent thinking and engaging with the generated output. The flyer also deals with the topics of copyright and data protection and shows students what they need to bear in mind in this regard. The flyer contains a poster on the back that summarizes the most important "dos" and "don'ts" in short form and can be hung up in the classroom, for example.

Rules for the class chat

At secondary school at the latest, there is a class chat. It is used for discussions that usually go beyond school-related topics. A lack of netiquette and a lack of time or topic limits often lead to problems such as cyberbullying or excessive demands in class chat groups. These class chat problems can have a negative impact on the class atmosphere. Take preventative measures and set rules for the class chat together with the pupils. It is not only important to regulate what content (does not) belong in the chat, but also who is responsible for ensuring compliance with the rules and any sanctions.

Playfully recognize disinformation

With our actionbound "In the bunker of lies", young people can playfully track down fake news and conspiracy stories. The story: There is a secret bunker under the government district in Berlin where "dark machinations" are taking place. At least that's what the anonymous conspiracy ideologue Y reports. Together with K, who deals with the spread of conspiracy narratives, the players explore the question of how to recognize disinformation.
"In the Bunker of Lies" is available free of charge via the Actionbound app. The average playing time is 25 minutes. Tips for use in the classroom can be found in an information sheet for teachers.

Safe, critical and fair online - 10 learning units

Our teaching material "App+on - Safe, critical and fair online" is suitable for use from the fifth grade and comprises ten learning units. In the units, which each comprise one lesson, children and young people are informed about possible risks. They can repeat what they have learned in small project tasks and put it into daily practice. The teaching units are based on ten selected videos from the ZDFtivi media education web magazine "App+on". Topics include false beauty ideals on Instagram, the dangers of fake news and the repetition of gender stereotypes in online profiles.

Young Crime - Judgment in the classroom

What are typical juvenile offenses and how are they dealt with in court? What stories are behind the crimes? The ZDFtivi format "Young Crime" explores these questions. A real case is presented in 25-minute episodes. "Young Crime" focuses on crimes that are primarily committed by young people.

Together with ZDF, klicksafe offers teaching material for two episodes of the true crime series. The klicksafe teaching unit on the episode "Handy-Terror" deals with the case of sexualized blackmail of a girl in a public chat by a boy from her school. The students receive background information on the legal situation and evaluate the case using symbol cards. The klicksafe teaching unit on the episode "Online rip-offs" deals with a case of sales fraud by a young person. In this unit, the pupils receive information about fake stores and learn about protective measures in the form of a checklist.
