Umbrella is a 3-lesson unit within IQ PROGRAMS, written by specialist educators for children aged 6-7 (Years 1-2 in Australia). Umbrella helps children identify and respond to ‘safe’ and ‘unsafe’ media, and develops their social and self-awareness skills when it comes to their online activity. The “umbrella” is one example used to assist students in making these connections, serving as a metaphor for protection and preparedness. Students learn their need to be prepared when they enter any new media environment. Students can then apply their umbrella when confronted with situations that make them feel unsafe, such as being asked to do risky things or seeing harmful media content.
