iRights Youth Juries Open Educational Resource project

We are so pleased with the positive impact of the iRights Youth Juries that we would like to offer others with the opportunity to facilitate their own sessions. You are invited to help us revise this resource to make it open and usable by others. We are looking for individuals (working with youth aged 16-25) to provide initial feedback, facilitate a jury and be part of the OER development for future adopters.

If you would like to be part of this project and deliver your own Youth Jury, please contact Kate Green at kate.green@nottingham.ac.uk or Elivira Perez at elvira.perez@nottingham.ac.uk.

Please find the original  guidelines below that act as our launch-pad into developing an accessible and adoptable resource.

iRights Youth Jury Toolkit

These resources and guidelines are by no means absolute and we welcome you to adapt them to suit your group and facilitation style. We would like to hear your feedback to better serve future facilitator needs.

The format of a session is simple:
  1. Stimulus —> Present one of the dramatised scenarios
  2. Discussion —> Discuss the scenario and its themes as a group
  3. Recommend —> In smaller groups, deliberate on what recommendations they would make

What you will need:
  1. 📹 Video Scenarios
  2. 📃 Paper
  3. 🖋 Pens
Session Guidelines & Sample Script
  1. Introductions of yourself (if necessary)
  2. Ice breaker question: if there were any apps or websites or games that you couldn’t live without, or you’d find it hard to live without what would they be and why?
  3. Introductions of participants, sharing answer to the ice-breaker question
  4. Show "What is the Internet" video-scenario
  5. Ask for feedback - what did you think to that? What is your initial reaction? Did it make sense?
  6. Introduction of iRights Youth Juries < all the information you need will be here!
  7. Ask participants - what do you think a jury is?
  8. Ask participants - what are rights?

Then into the 3-part format:

  1. Introduce and show first scenario e.g. Right to Know
  2. Ask participants - what are your reactions? What do you think about it?
  3. Provide more information about the topic
  4. Ask participants a further questions - e.g. What do you think should and shouldn't be kept private about you online? What can you do to stop trackers online? Do you read Terms and Conditions before agreeing?
  5. Ask participants to form small groups (3-4) and come up with proposals or recommendations to industry/government; ideas to make the T&Cs better; what industry should be doing to support young people.
  6. Ask participant groups to present their favourite/strongest idea.
  7. Repeat format with new scenario

Please note that there are four scenarios (the Right to Know, the Right to Remove, the Right to Safety and Support, and the Right to Informed Conscious Use). The fifth iRight (The Right to Digital Literacy) has previously taken a different style, please see below.
