2. We then discuss how social media and cyberbullying can affect a person’s mental health. A Fact or Fake game will help illustrate statistics around cyberbullying.
3. We then look at protecting a person’s reputation online including what to do if theirs becomes damaged. Students will watch a video about the harms of sexting.
4. Participants then discuss how excessive media use can lead to less physical activity. Students will list activities they could engage in not using a device.
