Get Creative when Running your Be Strong Online Campaign
Raise awareness about Be Strong Online in your school by running a campaign
You might not have the opportunity to reach everybody in your school through your Be Strong Online sessions. That’s why it’s a great idea to find fun and exciting ways to spread awareness on online issues and about the Be Strong Online programme in your school!
We’ve put together some ideas to help you get started. Get creative and think about what would work best in your school.
Noticeboards and peer support sessions
Set up a noticeboard to let students know who the Be Strong Online Ambassadors team is, what your team will be doing this month, and how they can get in contact with you if they have any online issues they need advice on. For instance, you might run regular drop-in sessions for anyone who wants to speak to your team.
Have a Be Strong Online awareness day
Let other students know about your Be Strong Online work with an awareness day! Hang up banners, have an information stand, and run fun group activities.
Create a social media page and add students from your school
Post regular Be Strong Online tips and advice and share photos and videos about online safety and skills. Ask your staff leader for help setting this up.
Invite parents for a Be Strong Online eveninG
Each topic contains a parent info sheet, which has key advice and support for parents. An information evening is a great way to get parents involved with Be Strong Online and answer parents’ questions – you can hand out these info sheets too.
Create a survey
This is a great way to find out what students in your school know about online safety and skills, and what issues are affecting them. Ask your staff leader to help you.
Assemblies are a great way to let students in your school know about the Be Strong Online programme and share information on different online issues. We have created a template to help you plan your assembly.
Stick posters around your school
Share key online safety messages on colourful posters around your school to spread the word on how to be strong online!
Hand out Be Strong Online leaflets
Pick out helpful info and key messages from the different Be Strong Online topics and make clear, colourful leaflets to hand out in school.
Make a school video
You could interview students in your school or youth group with questions like “what’s your top online safety tip” and “what does it mean to be strong online”?
Act out a play
You could pick out a scenario from one of the modules and act it out to students with your Ambassador team. This is a great way to get other students involved and learn more about the Be Strong Online programme.
The possibilities are endless! If you have any questions or if you’d like to let us know about a campaign activity you’ve run in school, get in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org
