War in Ukraine, escalation in the Middle East conflict, climate change - in times of crisis, we all experience uncertainty and irritation, often in line with disinformation, fake news, conspiracy narratives and hate speech online. Added to this are AI tools that are used to spread fake images and videos on a massive scale. What is true? What is false?  Children and young people also encounter false claims, hate and hate speech on TikTok, Instagram and in chat groups every day. Their trust in democracy, in the world of adults, which is supposed to give them security and certainty, is being shaken. How can we effectively counter disinformation and strengthen media literacy - especially among young people?

In the klicksafe online workshop "Disinformation and hate speech online - response strategies and other didactic approaches for teaching", we have DigiBitS (digital education meets school) as our guest, a project by Germany Safe on the Net (DsiN). They will provide information on how young people can be sensitized to the dangers of disinformation and hate speech in the classroom. Participants will learn about the forms, content and effects of disinformation and hate speech. Afterwards, tried-and-tested and practicable approaches for the classroom will provide suggestions on how to react safely and confidently to disinformation and hate speech online.

The online workshop is aimed at teachers from Year 7 onwards, particularly in the subject areas of German, social sciences, political education and history.

Participation in the workshop is free of charge. Registration is mandatory, the number of participants is limited to 30.
