Event Details

Safe Online

From Fake News to Extremism in a Digital Age

 

  • Single session workshop
  • Workshops are up to 1 hour in duration
  • Flexible session durations to fit in with timetabling needs
  • Aimed at (approx) 30 participants per session

 

Delivered in your own school, Safe Online is a workshop which explores false news and online propaganda. It teaches young people how to tell if information online is suspect or distorts the truth, and what to do if you see online material that promotes extremism.

 

The projects aim to equip young people with the understanding of the difference between their traditional online safety learning, namely around online bullying and personal safety, and how the internet is used to spread extremist messaging.

 

The session uses real life examples from apps, games and websites that are in common use by the participants to explore how narratives are spread through imaging, messaging and manipulation. It allows participants to recognise extremist activity, how to be resilient to false and manipulative activity, and how to take action safely if they are exposed to it.

 

The workshops use methods that make these issues meaningful for young people and provide a safe space to explore them. Our experience in this realm of work allows us to broach often difficult subjects and make them accessible and safe for young people.

 

The feedback from the people who have engaged with the sessions is overwhelmingly positive, and all concerned said that they would recommend the projects to others.

 

The Peace Museum has delivered Prevent work to thousands of young people, supporting schools, families and communities to work together to protect young people from harm. Their innovative Choices project has been identified as a model of Best Practice by the Prevent team at the Home Office and is now being rolled out across the UK.
