About The Lesson Plan

Teenagers now are more digitally savvy than ever before. At this age, they’re often extremely confident digital citizens and comfortable with technology being in their life, so it’s important that they’re taught how to navigate content safely and make sure they have the confidence and awareness to raise anything they’re not sure about.

Purposely developed to make life easier for teachers, our lesson plans for year 10 provide you with everything you need to engage and inspire young minds to learn about online safety.

Formed directly in line with the learning objectives from the UKCIS Education for a Connected World Framework, and designed to support statutory curriculum requirements and recommended best practice, our lesson plans include:
