The SELMA Toolkit for Tackling Online Hate for Secondary Schools

A comprehensive and interactive toolkit resource developed by the SELMA partners to empower secondary school students to find out more about what constitutes hate speech, how reading and absorbing hate speech affects our mental health and emotional wellbeing and what young people themselves can do to tackle hate speech online. The toolkit can be used in PSHE, RSE, Citizenship, ICT lessons or used outside of school by youth clubs and other organisations.

The toolkit aims to develop 3 skill areas:

  • Social and emotional learning (SEL) which helps young people develop self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills and responsible decision-making

  • Media literacy (ML) which gives young people the ability to analyse, evaluate and create online media messages across a variety of contexts

  • Citizenship education (CE) which empowers teenagers to make constructive and ethical choices about personal behaviour and social interactions.
