Read all about it! - News stories for young people on Thinkuknow

Did you know that as well as providing clear, age-appropriate information, guidance and support for young people, the Thinkuknow sites for 11-13s and 14+ each have a great 'News' section?

They contain interesting, thought-provoking, topical news articles relating to sex, relationships and the internet, written by CEOP's Education team to appeal to and engage young people. Recent articles include:

·         UK Young People's Views on Porn

It is well-known that young people benefit and learn from real-life stories. Our selection of regularly updated news stories can act as a great resource for practitioners who are looking to engage young people through current affairs. After all, what better way is there to engage young people about the implications of oversharing online than relating it to the real-life story of how a teen lost £50,000 after sharing too much on Facebook or when a 14-year-old was arrested after sending a 'joke' terror threat on Twitter?

We want to make the news section as engaging as possible so if you have any suggestions of potential news stories relevant to an 11-17s audience let us know via education@nca-ceop.gsi.gov.uk or by sending a tweet to @ThinkuknowUK.
