The training of teachers are trainings that every partner association of the ON OFF project deliver to teachers and educators that, lately, will implement the workshops of the ON OFF methodology with young people.
In the training, the trainer explains the ON OFF project and all the workshops, including the activities from each one, with the objective of giving the required knowledge to teachers and educators to implement them with young people.
The trainer is a prepared person from each partner association, that has received formation on the ON OFF methodology and workshops, and that is able to solve doubts and explain the project and its objectives.
The testing with young people is delivered by the teachers in each partner Country. Around 100 teachers and educators, trained by the partners, implement the Intervention Strategies with more than 1000 young people aged 12-17.
This phase succeeded to raise awareness on gender stereotypes and online GBV. Thanks to emotionally engaging, informative and stimulating activities proposed with the Workshops of the ON-OFF Model, they have reflected on how many gender stereotypes are present in our daily lives, how we can be more respectful and avoid them, how we can communicate in a more positive way, how many different forms of online GBV there can be, how we can pay more attention with our behaviors and relations online, the concrete and offline effect of what happens online, the importance of not underestimate negative episodes and of not blaming the victim.
The objective of the evaluation of the behavioral change of the ON-OFF project is to analyze the effectiveness and impact of the ON-OFF Model especially in relation to know what favors the change in the way people communicate, relate and act. Two questionnaires addressed to young people and two questionnaires addressed to teachers/educators were defined to be submitted before the workshops and at the end of the project in order to measure the behavioral change. The project identified 8 behavioral changing goals:
Strengthening the ability to recognize the phenomenon of the objectivation of women
Increase the awareness of the responsibilities of the guilty and not of the victims in cases of discrimination and gender-based violence
Improve the ability of young people to recognize form of cyberbullying
Raise awareness of the power of new technologies (social media) and how they can also be harmful
Raise awareness of the severity of cyberbullying
Raise awareness that the construction of one's gender identity is a construction influenced by society
Improve the ability to recognize the social impact of gender stereotypes in mass communication
Raise awareness about the capabilities of the misuse of digital technologies can offend, humiliate, threaten, harass or abuse
The Policy Recommendations represent a series of operational and strategic indications for combating online gender-based violence, starting from the assumption that the online dimension makes certain behavior less evident that can be considered real violence.
The Policy Recommendations are the result of the analysis of the behavioral change manifested by the participants during the training process and summarize in 9 proposals addressed to administrators, teachers, educators and communication experts a series of strategic and operational indications on which to work individually, as institutions and as a community to educate to gender equality
(WP2) ON-OFF INTERVENTION MODEL DESIGN
The objective of the ON-OFF Intervention model is to design an educational and awareness model to prevent online GBV. While developing a Child Protection Policy to protect the rights of minors involved, partners will start the Model design. On the one hand, they will collect information directly from the target groups through a questionnaire. On the other, they will investigate cyber GBV, detecting good practices, other projects, main national and European policies. Partners will develop a set of activities and materials to emotionally engage, empower and increase capacities. The Model will be pre-test before full-scale implementation in WP3.
Online questionnaires for the teachers, educators and mentors
WP3 aims to implement ON-OFF Model, the behavioural lever of the project to prevent and respond to cyber GBV among youngsters. It will sensitise and empower young people to avoid and react to this kind of harassment and help teachers / educators to raise awareness and assume an educational role in this sector, supporting thousands of young people in changing social attitudes. The effective WP3 implementation will be supported by the participative path of LTC Groups and the formal engagement of Public Administrations and Schools/Youth centres as Associated Partners. The Online Platform will host all materials needed to implement ON-OFF Model. After the training for trainers, the Intervention Strategies will be tested with teachers/educators in all Countries. ON-OFF Info days will raise awareness among a wider public at local level through the direct involvement of participants, sharing lessons learnt in a Peer Education logics and incentivizing the Model further implementation.
(WP4) ON-OFF ANALYSIS OF BEHAVIORAL CHANGE
WP4 aims to analyze the effectiveness and impact of ON-OFF Model (project behavioral lever), especially in terms of change of social attitudes of participants, behavior and relationships. This analysis will identify intervention paths that will be translated into operational (Report on Analysis of Behavioural Change) and strategical terms (Policy Recommendations), thanks to the contribution of stakeholders involved.
