Teachers Toolkit

 

The Teacher’s Toolkit initiative has been developed to assist teachers in addressing specific issues relating to online child sexual exploitation in a variety of learning environments including online, remote and in the classroom. These resources are intended to complement learning from ThinkUKnow presentations for students.

ThinkUKnow Teacher’s Toolkit resources include prevention messages, activities, videos and information on where students can go to for further help. They aim to prompt open discussion among students and have been designed to achieve specific learning goals associated with online child safety, linked to the current Australian Curriculum.
