Positioning game - Statements and questions about the handling of personal data on the Social Web

As part of the training material for digital youthwork this method focusses on fostering discussions among young people about their ways to handle personal information online.

Positioning game- Statements and questions about the handling of personal data on the Social Web

The aim of this method is that

  • Young people position themselves on various statements and questions about the handling of personal data on the Social Web
  • Young people argue their own opinions and deal with the arguments of others.

The Positioning Game is a low-threshold method to stimulate discussion about the use and processing of personal information on the Social Web. The focus is on individual positioning and joint discussion of privacy and data protection issues. It is important that it is not a matter of judging a particular position. It is not about right or wrong, but about initiating reflection processes together. While the young people, as experts, talk about their own dealings with the media and make their attitudes clear, the youth workers play a moderating role.

If questions arise during the implementation that cannot be answered, these can be assigned to the young people as research tasks and then worked out at the end of the method or in a follow-up session.
