We put students in the driver's seat. Through a variety of role plays, activities and games, and interactive discussion, they’re the ones who identify and then explore the content and extract the messages within the workshops.

We provide young people with not only reactive strategies for tackling cyberbullying once it occurs, but also proactive strategies so they can keep themselves and their accounts safe. It’s all about teaching students empathy to prevent perpetration, as well as tactics to prevent victimisation.

PROJECT ROCKIT's leadership material has a real focus on the potential that we all have to be leaders, regardless of whether we have been recognised with an official leadership position. This idea of personal or 'everyday' leadership works well for both formal leadership groups (such as SRC) and the broader student body. Students' personal leadership skills are developed through a range of active and reflective challenges, providing opportunities for students to build on their strengths, develop resilience and stand up for what they believe in.

SECONDARY

 

Rather than dealing with labels of 'bullies' and 'victims,' the PROJECT ROCKIT approach places an emphasis on the role that all of us can play in challenging bullying and prejudice instead of standing by watching.

The workshop is set up around highly energetic and interactive challenges that enable students to safely and anonymously reflect on past behaviour and empathise with those with different experiences. We then wipe the slate and posing a call-to-action to be 'part of the solution' to bullying in the future. We then dive deep into exploring safe and socially credible strategies for challenging bullying - from strategies for students who are risk-averse right through to strategies for those who are out there and willing to give anything a go. There's something for everyone.

This is our most popular and highly valued program. Taking place over a full day or in the shorter 'snack-sized' format, our award-winning cyber content is designed to be delivered to large groups whilst remaining highly interactive and engaging.

Throughout 3 workshops spanning 4.5 hours, the DOT COM forum brings together a whole year level to explore the risks and rewards of challenging bullying, build peer support in online spaces, challenge judgement and social labels and launch strategies to stand up for yourself and others who are experiencing (cyber)bullying. Our approach recognises that (cyber)bullying is a social issue that plays out online, so much of the day addresses the social factors and drivers that often spill online: standing out versus fitting in, relationship ethics, privacy and consent and celebrating diversity.

What's more, students develop their awareness and empathy for targets of (cyber)bullying. empowering students to take ownership over core material and create a supportive online culture. The DOT COM forum will be an event to remember.

This workshop unpacks how we form judgements, what social labels we place on ourselves and others, and how we can display empathy to others online and offline. It's about challenging the status quo and breaking down why we label groups or individuals. Students reflect on their own experience and explore how unchecked assumptions tend to take on a whole new meaning, particularly online.

We achieve this by engaging students in social experiments, critical thinking and group discussion to ultimately smash existing judgements and re-write positive social labels that represent who students really are.
