One of the most important things you can do to raise media-savvy kids is to co-view media with your children. That includes listening to their music, watching TV, movies and videos together and playing the games they enjoy. While just being with them is an important step, this is also a great opportunity to help your kids think critically about the media they consume, by asking them questions about it and, sometimes, answering back.
Framed around key concepts of media literacy, the Facing Online Hate tutorial examines how the Internet is used to spread and incite hate, how radicalization occurs, and how youth encounter hate online both through traditional hate sites and “cultures of hatred”. The tutorial also provides strategies for building critical thinking skills in young people to help them understand the nature of online hate, how they may be targets and how to respond appropriately when bias, stereotyping and hatred are encountered online.
This tutorial aims to teach students essential digital literacy skills through simulating their favourite online experiences.
