Caught in the Web

02 Feb

‘Caught in the Web’ is a programme that has been put together by Newsround as a resource to inform children about staying safe on the internet.

The video lasts just over 14 minutes and tells the story of a girl who gets into trouble after her virtual life in an online chatroom spills into the real world.

As well as the main story there are also real-life case studies showing a girl who has suffered from cyber bullying and a boy who became addicted to playing games.

The programme seems to be aimed towards upper KS2 or lower KS3 students and it would be a good resource to show for Safer Internet Day or as part of a scheme of work about online safety. 

The video can be viewed online here
