Use the online interactive resource ‘padlet’ (http://padlet.com/) to share thoughts and opinions after watching the sexting videos?
Who does it affect? Using the graphic organiser, ‘how are your choices affecting other people?’ (refer Resources), write an example of a sexting incident - what you would do, and who (and how) this would affect others in that person’s life. The people this could affect can include parents of the person in the image, the initial receiver of the image, the friends of the initial receiver, teachers, grandparents, potential employers, etc.
Read the article: http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2013/jan/28/revenge-porn-degrades-women which outlines one woman’s struggle with her working reputation (she works in education), her personal life (she changes her name), her legal struggle, and defeat. ‘Revenge Porn’ is a form of bullying which can ruin lives.
Watch both video clips:
These are humorous ways to get a serious message across in a non-offensive way. Within a group of 3 decide to re-enact either the ‘show me your battery’ or the fruit video. Both will be funny, but will get the message across.
Create informative posters that warn of the dangers of sexting. This could include deleting the image - it’s better to be part of the solution than the problem. If you choose to send it on it is distributing pornography, and that’s against the law.
Permanence. What happens to a sxt once it is sent (refer to the activity ‘teach students how texts work’ at http://www.edudemic.com/guides/the-teachers-guide-to-keeping-students-safe-online/)
Invite a local police officer to visit the class to talk about when sexting might be criminal.
