Be in Ctrl
‘Be in Ctrl’ contains three lesson plans, an information pack for school leaders, and will be supported by a Police (Garda) Schools’ Talk. Produced in partnership with the Irish Police (An Garda Síochána), the ‘Be In Ctrl’ teaching resource has been developed to support teachers as they address the topic of online sexual coercion and extortion - often referred to as ‘webcam blackmail’. The Be in Ctrl resource aims to help students in post-primary schools understand that online sexual coercion and extortion of children is a crime, to raise awareness of safe online communication and promote help-seeking and reporting incidents.
