Ariel’s digital literacy project ‘Building Resilience in an online world’ had to be adapted to fit in with the new way teachers are having to educate young people within the current social climate. We developed a remote program that allows teachers and pupils to follow an animated version of our project officer Rachael Mutch through a six week project around the theme of ‘Lockdown’. 

The program deals with various issues such as mental health, isolation and social media use during the lockdown period. We felt it was imperative to keep our resources fully accessible during such a difficult time for both teachers and pupils. We feel we have produced a covid resistant resource ready to be used by the four schools that have currently signed up for the project.

“Thank you so much for the lovely resources. I think that the children will enjoy them very much and find them particularly useful as we go into this second, strange lockdown...your materials have given me lots of ideas!”
