Created By: Kim Maslin, Digital Technologies Educator

Date Published: 14 January 2018

Lessons Overview

These lessons address the issue of viewing inappropriate content online; students learn about the type of content that they might stumble across on the internet, the negative feelings they might experience if seeing this content and how they can best respond. They also learn about Media Classifications and how to identify if media is suitable for their age.

Lesson 1:

  • Students read “The Scary Plight of the Surfing Penguin” and reflect on Pablo’s experience
  • Students complete a Physical Warning Signs diagram (PDF) to identify the different warning signs our bodies give us when we’re feeling unsafe. This activity can also be completed via Seesaw Activity.

Lesson 2:

  • Students learn about Media Classifications (Powerpoint)
  • Students use the Australian Classifications website to identify the classifications and consumer advice for popular media


These lessons tie in with Protective Behaviours curriculum, as well as Health and Digital Technologies
