Building teachers competence about cyber violence against girls

The project CYBERSAFE MOOC will address the topic of online violence against girls which is a pressing problem that many school professionals are not equipped enough to address or tackle. For that reason, we have decided to bring the topic closer with several project activities:

  • a survey of schools (Estonian results (in Estonian))
  • development of MOOC and educational material
  • multiplier events for teachers

The main objective of the project is to bring together experts in the field of online violence and gender inequalities to develop educational material for educators/school staff/professionals working with young people, mainly in primary and lower secondary education (pupils and students 13 – 16 years old). In the project the main focus will be on the following forms of online violence against girls: a) Non-consensual sharing of intimate images or/and videos, b) Exploitation, coercion and threats c) Unwanted sexualization, and d) Sexualised bullying.

The main objectives of the project are:

–   To conduct a representative school survey in 4 EU countries/regions about online violence in schools

–   To support teachers and other school professionals with the development of new innovative teaching approaches

–  To develop an e-learning course (MOOC) with curriculum on cyberviolence against girls
