CyberharassmentGender & SexismCybersexism
Three NGO's and five universities across Europe have joined forces to deliver a serious game on the topics of cyberharrassment and cybersexism. This game is meant for middle-school students and is available in six languages. A teacher's manual and this module have been created to help teachers use the game in their class as a starting point for a discussion on cyberharassment. This project was financed by Erasmus+ and will remain free to use in the future.
Discover the creation process of the game:
