Interactive working methods: Think twice online

Topic: No Hate speech
Material: Presentation video, cardboards, flip chart papers, coloured markers, post-its, a laptop

1) INTRODUCTION

Since No Hate Speech is a leading institute in fighting against violence, it was found that this leading institute is no present in many countries, and it is not well-known to everyone. Based on the results of an online survey, more than 50% of the participants would like to know more about No hate speech and are not aware of how hate speech can affect people´s lives. They are not even aware enough that the amount of exposure given by themselves on the media is increasing hate speech. We would like to encourage people to be more careful about what they post on line, and that encouraging hate speech even in small doses, it would have big repercussions on vulnerable people.

2) OBJECTIVES

• To identify online participation, roles and risks of exposure;
• To learn how to address No hate speech;
• To understand what No hate speech is and what are its forms.

3) PROPOSED TARGET GROUP

Young people between 13 and 29 years. This activity can be applied to groups with at least 4 people.

4) TIMELINE

Overall duration: 20 minutes

Introduction: 5 minutes

At the beginning, a one minute No hate speech video will be showed to participants to introduce the idea of No hate speech. The video can found at the following link: http://bit.ly/2BxSbIt. After the video, 6 cards are hanged on the wall which represent different online roles. The roles that have to written on a piece of paper, are the following: creator, conversationalist, critic, collector, joiner and spectator.

Procedure: 8 minutes

The aim of the activity is that each participant has to put him/herself beside one of the six cards, trying to answer to the three questions:

1. What kind of online user you are?
2. How do you feel when you are on line regarding/reacting to hate speech?
3. How would you like to see yourself on line fighting hate speech in 10 years from now?

Once each participant has placed him/herself close to one of the roles, and after having answered to each questions, they have to look around to see what are the classmates’ answers, and where the other classmates have placed themselves.

Debriefing: 7 minutes

After few minutes, the facilitator stops the discussion and makes a circle with all the participants, creating a reflection group. The facilitator guides a discussion, or a debate, on how which actions could be used in order to improve their level of participation on-line fighting hate speech. All participant have to put in common their ideas on the wall at the end of the discussion, writing their answers and solutions on a Flipchart.
