Sexting Lesson plan

I am putting together a lesson plan all about sexting and more generally sex and technology. This is the rough plan I have got so far. I would love hear what you all think about it.

AIMS

young people will understand the possible emotional consequences of online sexual activities
young people will understand how to protect their reputation online
young people will understand the law regarding sexting

Blue String Game
to show how quickly information can be spread around.

Emotional intimacy of showing your body via pictures or webcams.
some kind of activity to show that the online world can be as emotionally impacting as the real world

How do you view the internet
is it a bridge between people
a bullet proof window
a gapping chasm
a long tunnel

Get 4 student volunteers divide into pairs
Sit facing each other, say one pair represnts real life one online life. say that the online group has to pretend they are divided by bullet proof glass
(2 dead laptops screen cut out)
give them some tasks to try and do

Wave at each other
Shake hands
Say hello
Share pictures (copy it)
Swap a chocolate bar
Try and make the other person smile
Call the other person "a silly mushroom"
Ask the other person to put their hands on their head.

then ask
Could you threaten the other person?
Could you punch the other person?
Could you say you fancied the other person?
Could you kiss the other person?
Can you comfort someone who is upset?
Can you let your family (living in Australia) know you miss them?
Can you show your partner your bedroom late at night?
Can you get your partner sexually excited?

Self respect (if you love you would)

Why would someone ask for a dirty picture?
- to laugh at you and bully
- to black mail you
- to show off to their friends
- they think it would be cool
- as a joke
- to get off (masterbate) over it (just like porn)
- because they miss your body

Review of Channel 4's Sex in Class

Review of Channel 4's Sex in Class from a relationship and sex educator's perspective. In this review I will try and bring my perspective as a relationship and sex educator to look at Channel 4's one off show Sex In Class . The show is about a Belgian sexologist Goedele Liekens  testing out her approach to relationship and sex education for 15-16 year olds at a Lancashire school. You can read some great overall reviews from Jules Hillier at Brook  and  Sam Wollaston at the Guardian   of the show. In this blog I am trying to focus specifically on my my perspective as a relationship and sex educator on Goedele's content and approach.  Goedele Liekens with her charges in Sex in Class. Photograph: Matt Squire The show starts with a pretty unsurprising statistic of " 83% of kids have seen porn by the time they are 13" (source not cited) and goes on to show how teachers at this school don't think current RSE is good enough and also gives some quotes f

The need to talk about porn and release all the data

Today childline launched a new campaign (FAPZ) to help young people make sense of the powerful influence online porn can have on young people. I welcome any new or renewed effort to help tackle this issue. What ever adults personally think about adults consuming porn, it clearly is not meant for young people. Below is a tweet from Simon Blake (CEO of Brook) Agree @NSPCC we must talk about porn at home, school & community. Whatever you think about porn it is not place CYP should learn about sex — Simon Blake (@Simonablake) March 31, 2015 It is very worrying to hear Childline reporting high numbers of calls to their phone line where online porn is a key issue. And this will just be a tip of the iceberg of the influence porn is having. When I talk about Childline in high schools I have meet many young people who think its not for them because they aren't a child so they wont ring it. Such a shame.  However, the NSPCC could strengthen their campaign by releasing th
