In this webinar, we learn about instructional strategies for helping young people have meaningful learning about artificial intelligence, privacy, identity and surveillance, with Daisy Kidd from Tactical Tech, a Berlin-based international NGO that investigates how digital technologies change society and how they impact individual autonomy and agency. Learn about some practical strategies to engage youth as civil society actors and engaged citizens.
Our presenter will showcase lessons from the DATA DETOX X YOUTH activity book, which helps young people take control of their technology. This interactive toolkit encourages young people to think about different aspects of their digital lives, from their social media profiles to their passwords, with simple activities for reflection and play.
