Be Internet Citizens Workshop

While social media now plays a vital role in the everyday lives of young people as citizens, education systems across the developed world have been slow to react: Be Internet Citizens seeks to meet this need.

ISD’s experienced facilitators visited Lewisham to teach 13 to 15-year-olds about media literacy, critical thinking and digital citizenship, encouraging young people to be positive voices online while increasing their resilience to hate and extremism. Young people in the workshop were exposed to key topics such as fake news, online hate speech and exposed to the ‘Us vs Them’ narrative often used in political rhetoric.
