Young people discuss consent online, image-based abuse, including the impact of Artificial Intelligence, and the tools they have to positively support themselves and their peers.

Key learnings:

  • Understand the impact our actions have online.
  • Learn strategies to seek help for yourself or others.

Curriculum Aligned

The Cyberbullying workshop directly addresses the Australian Curriculum 9.0 Digital Literacy capability through exploring how to: 

  • Manage online safety 
  • Manage digital privacy and identity 
  • Manage digital wellbeing 
  • Protect content  

  It also addresses aspects of the Personal and Social capabilities including: 

  • Self-awareness 
  • Self-management 
  • Social awareness 
  • Social management 

With a focus on developing students’ critical literacy skills in relation to digital texts the following cross curriculum links apply: 

Health & Physical education 

  • Describe and demonstrate how respect and empathy can be expressed to positively influence relationships (AC9HP6P04) 
  • Examine how strategies, such as communicating choices, seeking, giving, and denying consent, and expressing opinions and needs can support the development of respectful relationships, including sexual relationships (AC9HP10P07) 
  • Describe strategies for seeking, giving, or denying consent and rehearse how to communicate their intentions effectively and respectfully (AC9HP6P07) 
  • Analyse and rehearse protective behaviours and help-seeking strategies that can be used in a range of online and offline situations (AC9HP6P08) 
  • Refine protective behaviours and evaluate community resources to seek help for themselves and others (AC9HP8P08) 


  • Recognise how language empowers relationships and roles (AC9E9LA01) 
  • Understand how language can have inclusive and exclusive social effects, and can empower or disempower people (AC9E10LA01) 
Technology Year 7 & 8
  • 4.3.1- (Information technologies) applies a broad range of contemporary and appropriate tools, materials and techniques with competence in the development of design projects
  • 4.4.1- explains the impact of innovation and emerging technologies on society and the environment
The Australian Curriculum F–10 includes three general capabilities:
  • Literacy
  • Numeracy
  • Information and Communication Technologies (ICT)
The Victorian Curriculum F–10 design does not include these three general capabilities as separate learning areas or capabilities with discrete knowledge and skills. The ICT general capability skills are either specifically embedded in the content descriptions of Mathematics, Media Arts, Geography, English and Digital Technologies or schools have the flexibility to determine how these skills will be used in their teaching and learning programs for other curriculum areas.
