About Dynamic Identity
The project Dynamic Identity aims to imcrease the understanding of students aged 11 to 18 concerning the construction and expression of their online identities, especially in relation to online profiling – and to increase their relevant skills. The project achieves its goal by offering students a multi-session workshop in which they learn step-by-step by means of cognitive and practical modules how to voice and share their self-reflection on this topic..
What are the benefits for students?
Students will get to:
- Self-reflect on their own online activities, both conscious and unconscious;
- Learn coping mechanisms to increase their resilience in dealing with online experiences, both positive and negative;
- Protect their online personae;
- Improve their digital self-expression capabilities;
- Adopt responsible consumer behaviour.
How will students benefit?
The Dynamic Identity project will produce a carefully designed theoretical framework in the form of a manual that teachers can use to conduct the workshop at their own schools. This manual will help teachers guide their students through the workshop’s task modules, the theory modules and the discussions.
The task modules are supported by state-of-the-art technology (Augmented Reality) and by traditional technology (film) and will confront the participants with:
- Their assumptions,
- Their attitudes,
- And their decisions
In February the first pilots took place at the UniC school in Utrecht, the Netherlands, involving all students from the first year. Currently pilots are conducted at the IX LO in Gdansk, Poland.
