The Professional Development Service for Teachers (PDST) is Ireland’s largest support service offering professional learning opportunities to teachers and school leaders. We worked with their internet safety division to produce "Be In Ctrl”.

The workbook aims to help teenagers address the complex issues online safety, reputation helps to provide a guideline for a better online experience through written exercises and videos as well as information, advice and conversation starters.

The publication's design takes a playful graphic style which allowed us to illustrate serious or grave topics such as sexual coercion, extortion as well as more everyday aspects of online life like trolling and bullying and without being overwhelming.
