Teaching guide (LES)

The LES (Learning and Evaluation Situation) Cyberviolence Among Teens targets students aged 12 to 17 years. The guide is part of a plan to counter bullying and violence in secondary schools. It was developed by Inês Lopes, Ph.D., psychologist and instructional designer, to educate teens and inform teachers about various forms of cyberviolence, their causes and explanatory factors, potential consequences, laws and possible solutions.

The LES consists of a teacher’s guide, video clips, fact sheets and worksheets to be completed by students.
