My well-being and yours – new resource for teens
- Web We Want
In order to mark Safer Internet Day 2017, the Web We Want and ENABLE projects* have joined forces against bullying and launched a new resource for children and young people: "My well-being and yours: Respect begins with me!".
This new resource is a compilation of exercises discussing current hot topics such as cyberbullying, online radicalisation and hate speech. Within twelve pages, children and young people are able to carry out a variety of self-assessments as well as engage in interactive group work with their classmates and friends. Teachers will also be able to integrate the suggested exercises into their daily curriculum.
During the course of spring 2017, the resource will also be made available in Croatian, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Portuguese and Romanian. Consult the Web We Want website to download your copy.

The internet is a place where curiosity and creativity can thrive and where you develop a wide range of skills in a seemingly less threatening manner. Nevertheless it holds certain pitfalls for the unwary. As in all other aspects of life, education is essential to foster more reflective ways of using online media.
