Lesson Plan 2 Digital Ethics of Care
The Digital Ethics of Care project was funded by the Economic and Social Research Councils Network+ 'eNurture'. The goal of the project was to understand how pre-adolescent children understood the concept of a digital 'ethics of care' in their interactions with others online. Data gathering took place in 2021 and comprised a paired interview approach with children-as-researchers. As a result of the analysis and consultations with teachers, artist Tom Cleaver created a game for use in schools.
This Lesson Plan is aimed at 7-10 year olds and addresses the following learning intentions:
- To understand the impact of cyberbullying.
- To understand why some victims find it hard to seek support.
The plan is accompanied by a set of slides for use during the lesson.
