The Online Together Project

This interactive tool has been designed by Internet Matters and Samsung to help support all young people, their parents and carers, to develop critical thinking skills and encourage a positive and inclusive culture online.

The first phase focuses on breaking down gender stereotypes with content reviewed and supported by teachers and experts with Global Diversity Practice’s endorsement. The second phase focuses on tackling online hate with all content reviewed by online safety experts and support from Stop Hate UK.

Online safety and digital citizenship underpins every product or service at Samsung, and therefore Samsung is committed to understanding and educating young people and their families as to how to use technology as a force for good, at any age.

What you need to know about the interactive tool

This tool has been developed to:

  • Help prepare children and young people (from age 6 and up) for how to respond to experiences they might encounter online
  • Encourage confidence when using connected technology, regardless of background
  • Allow use by children alone, together with their peers, in the classroom or at home
  • Promote learning and conversation on important topics
  • Work in support of the RSE curriculum.
How does it work?

The Online Together Project’s interactive quizzes offer young people and parents the opportunity to test their understanding of different online topics. This contributes to critical thinking skills through encouraging conversations.

Age-specific quizzes

Each quiz is split into three age groups: Under-11s, 11-13s and 14+. This helps children of all ages access the information and make positive changes to their own online experiences.

Guiding discussion and information

After each question, you’ll find information about the correct answers, additional guidance and resources to save for later and discussion questions to consider before moving forward. You can also download this information at the end of the quiz to return to later. So, give yourself 15 to 30 minutes to play for the best learning experience.

Play independently or together

Children can play together with their parent or carer at home, or they can play with peers at school. The tool works well for independent learning as well, giving children the opportunity to build their knowledge by themselves.

Further information

At the end of each quiz, you’re provided options to share on social media, download a certificate or download supporting resources to help with ongoing conversations around gender stereotypes and online hate.

What topics are covered?

Tackling online hate

This quiz explores protected characteristics, algorithms, being an upstander and more. While each age-specific quiz covers similar concepts, the language and detail in each is adapted to suit children’s levels of understanding based on their age.

Breaking down gender stereotypes

This quiz explores gender stereotypes, equality between boys and girls, challenging prejudice and more. Talking about these issues can help stop the spread of online hate like misogyny and misandry since it’s a topic that is often avoided.

Who is it for?

  • Young people – aged under 11, 11-13, and 14+ to develop the tools and skills to defy barriers online
  • Parents and carers – to facilitate learning and conversation around the subject matter together with their child(ren)
  • Classrooms and youth groups – to support learning in the Relationships & Sex Education curriculum and UK Council for Internet Safety Educating for a Connected World

Why is it important?

In an ever-connected world, it is important to support young people to understand others’ viewpoints, help young people feel empowered and supported in their experiences with others online and, for the tool’s first topic, to challenge negative preconceptions of gender stereotypes online.

In developing these tools, Samsung and Internet Matters aim to support both children, young people and their families to:

  • think about how words and actions can impact others,
  • show how to interact with others the way they would want to be treated; and
  • demonstrate the best ways to respect and value other people’s opinions by showcasing the things that can be done to contribute to positivity online.
