Learning Activities, Learning Paths & Further Reading
This page will guide you through the Module's correct use and understanding. Following the Learning Paths, with activities of varying depth, should allow participants to obtain a better grasp of the studied subjects.
We suggest starting this module with one of the Starter Activities: Unpacking "Safe", The Bubble, or Develop Your Internet Dream Place - in order for the participants to start exploring the concepts. If you want to be more specific, there are starter activities about consent and privacy (Photo Social Network), cloud storage and data privacy (The Cloud), and consent and device permissions (Visioning + Discussion: Settings + Permissions). Depending on your group's goals, these will help ground your group in concepts of safety and privacy.
You can use the Develop Your Internet Dream Place to work with a group that needs to redesign an existing internet space or design a new one with values of safety and privacy.
Then enhance the group´s grasp of the concepts with the Deepening Activities:
- Online Safety "Rules" is about articulating how the participants want to safeguard their online spaces, but also an opportunity to clarify the basic principles of online safety.
- Privacy, Consent and Safety is an open lecture-type activity where the concepts can be further deepened and clarified.
The Tactical Activities are practical hands-on sessions.
- Making Online Spaces Safer is an activity to make the dream places real including addressing challenges of current design and policy of online spaces being at odds with the dream space visions. If you want to get hands-on with online services, this activity provides guidance for analysizing the settings, policies and norms of spaces. It is not a step-by-step guide to adjusting settings as they change too frequently.
- Alternative Tools for Networking and Communications is relevant for participants who want to start moving away from proprietary, commercial and less secure platforms and tools.
- Unpacking "Safe" - Visioning Exercise
- The Bubble - Visualisation Exercise
- Develop Your Internet Dream Place
- The Cloud
- Visioning + Discussion: Settings + Permissions
