ACTIVITY 4: Evaluator “Let’s change together”

Duration:  30 minutes

Tools for face to face activity: Video conferencing tool/Internet connection

Tools for online activity: Video conferencing tool/Internet connection

Brief description of the activity:

Having seen all the above, the teachers/ educators should now draw some conclusions together with the students:

By completing this, teachers/educators ask all of them how did it feel to have to face such a comment “in your face”? They allow space for discussion.

Questions to stimulate discussion:

How do you feel?

Why do you think you feel this way?

What is the difference between seeing these comments written versus saying them out loud?

How do you think the people to whom these questions are directed at, feel when they read them?

By completing this discussion, the teachers/ educators explain how the students are now ready to understand gender-based violence and misuse of new technologies.

As a final round, all students go into the same lines and replace the previous comments with positive ones. For example, if one of the comments was “you are ugly”, it now could be “you are pretty and you have a beautiful soul”.

This introduction could end up in a hug if social distancing measures allow. This activity can be used as a base for a further step where participants take a more proactive role.

*In this activity, the teachers/educators can choose to make a poster or a presentation or a video with the final statements of the participants (optional). Also, an alternatie scenario for the teachers/educators is included in the material included for this particular workshop.
