IICSA Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse

Learning about online sexual harm

Improving delivery style

Participants indicated that they valued and wanted education which provides opportunities for discussion and reflection, enabling two-way dialogue, as opposed to more didactic teaching styles. They noted the importance of creating an atmosphere that fosters openness and enables pupils to ask questions that might otherwise be difficult or embarrassing. They also emphasised benefits from recognising and integrating pupils’ experiences and expertise, and involving them in setting the learning agenda. Such approaches were noted to both enhance educators’ understanding of the realities of children’s and young people’s online lives, and make education more engaging for pupils.
