“Pornography and sexting can be tricky subjects to teach. To help you feel more confident, our materials are based on research, the lived experience of young people, our experience teaching in schools, input from more than s 20 professionals, and parents. Our aim is to encourage critical thinking and help pupils make informed choices about the use of internet pornography and sexting; no blame, no shame.”

New Zealand’s educational resources
