What will happen in your session?

Learners will share their thoughts and ideas, explore motivations and consequences, and practice their responses as they improve their ability to make informed decisions about online safety and peer relationships.

::Example:::

Activities are centered around answering questions, there are a variety of approaches that will be adopted. Blind votes work well for yes/no questions. Having participants write their answers and hold them above their heads will help ensure that everyone participates in a more comfortable way on sensitive topics.

The aim is to demonstrate how many skills come together to create a great discussion and to realise how all skills are valuable. i.e. a participants may choose to take the conversation beyond the classroom.

Skills:
Collaboration, Communication, Crafting etc...

What is the goal or outcome of your session?

The goal of the session is to settle the group and ensure everyone understand the rules, we will get a class to think about the topic for further collaboration. To help young people understand how close and intimate the Internet can be we need to help them engage in the subject matter.

To understand further the term sexting, this session aims to explore the reasons people want to engage in sexting - this will help the class to understand how quick information and images can move.

The topic is sensitive and we are looking for everyone to approach it with maturity and leadership skills. Be respectful of others opinions and ideas. Everyone chooses to express themselves in different ways.

If your session requires additional materials or electronic equipment, please outline your needs.

Throughout the session every individual will bring their devices but white boards and stickers including markers will be provided for collaboration.

Time needed

60 mins

Curious about specific questions, steps, or facilitative techniques that might be used to structure the session as a safe space with clear boundaries and discussion points. Also curious about any support facilitators might need from the space wranglers.

@chadsansing to address your questions this is what I'm looking to bring into the session:

Specific Questions:

  • What is a selfie?.

  • Why do people take selfies? Distribute as a handout, show on a slide or ask for written responses that participants hold up over their head.

  • Learning to take a good selfie is said to be a teen survival skill. Why? Describe your selfie process. What is the goal when you post a selfie? Distribute a handout or have them draw a diagram or describe a process.

Steps

  • Get into groups. Distribute the 3 Circles handouts and response cards.

  • Groups should try to put the cards into the circles they think they fit in.

  • Get feedback and discuss how wide the results could be.

Note: Individual introductions and the topic, set context and ground rules for participating.

No need for support facilitators since I have experience running web literacy sessions including this type of topics. However, I'm happy to invite Mozilla staff to co-facilitate.

Thank you for the detail, @omudongo. I wonder if your audience for this proposed session might be able to discuss its own definitions of selfies and why people take them. That might lessen the time spent on presenting and slides and increase the time spent in more participatory activities for the audience.

@chadsansing I think your question is addressed on the "Steps" above. This helps drive the audience to understand the importance of the subject matter. And of course there will be a discussion session (not a presentation session) which is key and leading to engage everyone.

BTW this is a youth zone session and I believe it's critical that my audience understands key subject matter and important definitions before jumping into group sessions.

Just wanted to chime in that your session is listed under the Web Literacy space, despite your remark that this is in fact a session for the Youth Zone. We can make this adjustment for you once the August 1st deadline (end of Call for Proposals) has been reached.

I also noticed that your session has an 18+ warning, Mozilla Festival is intended to be an age and family friendly event, and as wranglers we can't control whom decides to show up to your session, basically; we can't enforce anything like that.

@ryanwarsaw thank you so much for your input. I'd really appreciate it, I was a little confused where this session would belong and had to go with this option. What do you have in mind regarding this adjustment?

Well, of course the session is open to everyone regardless of their age and being a family friendly event, some people may not feel comfortable to have their kids participate in this type of session due to personal choice.

There is nothing sensitive or insulting we will discuss in this session that may stop anyone from attending the session, everything will be transparent and informational. The session name might seem misleading but this is an open event for anyone.

Often times the space descriptions can help you determine which space is the best fit for your session, and that is completely up to you. I'm a Web Literacy wrangler, so I'd be happy to answer questions about our space in particular if you have them.

In regards to the substance of your proposal, I think it's totally fine. I understand what you're trying to accomplish, I think it's a good conversation to have since it's an increasingly common issue, amongst all age groups. Given everything previously discussed, I don't think this session requires additional support as long as it remains how you've described it.

In that respect, I think your session name may mislead some people -- you may want to consider changing it if it's accepted, other than that 👍

@Btayeg I want to believe that this session could fit in both spaces but I preffer the Youth Zone since they are the most critical netizens who need this lesson more. This is a necesarry discussion to have regardles of the age group BTW for as long as the toning of the subject is targeted to the age group.

@chadsansing I would have really loved to explore other avenues to fund myself to participate at MozFest unfortunately I'm not able to attend the festival without Mozilla's support.

Thanks,

@omudongo, hello! We need a bit of information from you. You recently submitted a request for laptops for your session, but previously, you had not asked for any. We are fairly late in the scheduling process and will do our best to accommodate you, but we cannot guarantee the laptops you recently requested.

Can you please respond to this comment and let us know the minimum equipment you need for your session?
