"Too Naked for the Internet?": Educational material by young people for young people

klicksafe publishes media scouts support material for flyer

Posting photos and videos on the Internet is part of everyday life for many young people. But what can be the consequences of revealing too much about oneself on the Internet? 20% of 14- to 24-year-olds have already regretted sharing private information, photos or videos on social networks (source: Forsa survey "Everything under control?!" January 2018). klicksafe publishes a new companion material to the klicksafe flyer "Too naked for the Internet?" on the topic of self-expression online, which was developed in cooperation with the peer-to-peer initiative Medienscouts NRW.

Too naked for the Internet?!
The klicksafe flyer "Too naked for the Internet?" offers young people the opportunity to recognize the negative consequences that can occur when photos are shared thoughtlessly. In ten steps, young people are asked to check whether they can post or send a picture without hesitation. They are helped by questions such as: Do I have the right to publish this photo? Could I live with it if my parents saw the picture? The new accompanying material goes into these aspects in greater depth and contains methodological and didactic tips as well as background information for the media scouts.

Key material for peer education
The NRW media scouts are active in schools in North Rhine-Westphalia and pursue a peer education approach. After qualifying, the media scouts can advise other students. Young people learn from their peers. The new work material is designed to help the scouts talk to each other about their own use of the media by giving them specific tasks to complete: What should they be aware of when sending photos via messenger services or social networks? Under the motto "think before you post!" ("Think before you post!"), it is also about raising awareness of data protection, image rights and privacy. The material can be used nationwide for peer-to-peer projects of this kind. Teachers and other multipliers in youth work can also use the work material and the flyer.

The accompanying material was created by klicksafe with the support of the media scouts of theLise-Meitner-Gymnasium in Geldern.
