|Aim||To reflect on one’s personal knowledge and prejudices about the internet as well as on possible myths concerning the internet/cybersex/chat rooms, etc.|
|Duration||Approx. 20-30 Min depending on the intensity of the discussion|
|Number of participants||any|
|Conditions||Circle of chairs|
|Material||A moderation card bearing the words “I agree” - A list of statements to discuss You can find some examples of statements on the right and on makeITsafe.ecpat.at -> Materalien -> Handbuch für Peer Experts.|
Place the “I agree” card in the middle of the circle of chairs. Explain the discussion rules (listen carefully, hear the others out, etc.). Let the participants know that there is no “right” or “wrong” and that this exercise is about perception and personal opinion.
Explain that you will now read out some statements. Ask the participants to take a stand by placing an object in the middle of the circle of chairs (e.g. a wristwatch, pen). The closer the object is placed to the middle/“I agree”, the more the person agrees. The closer the object is located to the outer edge of the circle, the more he/she disagrees. After everybody has taken a stand, ask some participants why they agree, disagree or don’t know. Ask others to respond.
