Through exploring the HTML Heroes 3rd and 4th Class edition and MySelfie and the Wider World resources teachers will reflect on how best to introduce the topic of cyberbullying with their pupils and frame the conversation in terms of how they communicate and interact with others online, and understanding why their actions matter and the impact it can have on others.
