Media Literacy WeekRegister action now and receive klicksafe poster "Our rules for class chat"!

From porn to insults to chain letters - in the class chat, people post what they can until late into the evening. This is because the class chat group is used by students to exchange information about school topics and much more. A lack of netiquette and a lack of time or topic limits in class chat groups often lead to problems such as cyberbullying or excessive demands. It becomes punishable if pornographic or extremist content is shared in the class chat.

Stress in the class chat has a negative effect on the class climate. Therefore, set rules for the class chat with your students at an early stage. What content (does not) belong in the chat? Who is responsible for ensuring that the rules are adhered to and for any sanctions? klicksafe offers teachers the teaching unit "Rules for class chat" . In line with the lesson, classes can record the rules they have worked out on the poster "Our rules for class chat" and have them signed by all class members.
