Online Bullying

Is it funny or is it hate?

Sometimes the words we say online can spread hate, even if we don't mean to. A joke can easily turn into hurtful words, and how someone reacts doesn't always show how they feel. Learn how to stop hate online and use words for kindness instead of hate. Then, help Nia create a more positive space in her favourite online game, Voxyarn, with Playing With Hate. Note: To access lesson resources, teachers must sign in.
