REAL TALK ON TOUGH TOPICS
PROJECT ROCKIT TV
We’re excited to be partnering with Google / YouTube to bring you PROJECT ROCKIT TV - creating conversations around the kind of stuff we don’t often get to talk about at school. Through our twelve-part series, we answer questions from students, like:
How do I handle hate in online gaming?
How can I better support friends when times are tough?
What should I do if someone is pressuring me to send private photos?
How can I make good stuff go viral?
PROJECT ROCKIT presenters are highly experienced facilitators, digital natives and have a genuine understanding of young people because, well, they are young people! Each episode comes complete with discussion questions to help frame classroom conversation or even chats between mates. Subscribe to our YouTube channel for new releases.
Here's how it works:
1. WATCH: You can view an episode as a whole class or individually. Episodes 1-3 are available below.
2. DISCUSS: You'll need to actually open the videos in YouTube to access discussion questions, which are presented in the description section below each video. Click 'show more' and a longer description will unfold, containing three discussion questions in relation to the video you've just watched. It looks just like this:
We recommend breaking out into small groups so that everyone can be heard. Be sure to stress that there are no right or wrong answers - the questions have been specifically designed with that in mind. It may also be helpful to point out that this isn't the space to unpack personal experiences with these issues, but that teachers can point students in the direction of follow up support should they need it.
3. SUBSCRIBE: We're releasing a total of 12 episodes throughout the year and if you're subscribed to PROJECT ROCKIT on YouTube you'll be the first to hear about it! Here's the line-up for 2017:
