SOCIAL MEDIA INPUT REFLECTION
Learners will be able…
… reflect the representation of equality and integration in a medial context.
…see how their own medial presence can have an impact on the people around them.
- 15-20 minutes
- 1-25 persons (no limit)
- This task is an individual exercise – each learner should do it by themself.
- Ask your learners to take a seat and think about equality and how they face it in everyday life. Ask them the following questions and pause after each, so that they have time to reflect.
- Think about how equality is presented in the (social)media.
- How do influencers or television represent integration, equality and tolerance?
- Can you think of any positive examples?
- Why do you think, they are positive examples or maybe even role models?
- Do you think it is important to represent topics around equality in a medial context?
- What impact has the representations on the people?
- How does your medial presence influence the people around you and how could you make a change?
- If the learners want to, you can discuss their opinions after the exercise. Be careful to guide the learners towards a tolerant and empathic outcome of the discussion. It is also absolutely okay to not share opinions and keep the take-away of the reflection exercise to oneself.
