SOCIAL4SCHOOL: EDUCATING ON AWARENESS IN ONLINE SOCIAL NETWORKS
Social4School is a web application that allows kids to experience the typical dynamics of information spread through a realistic interactive simulation. Under the supervision of the teacher, they are inserted in a small artificial social graph, and, through the different stages of the game, they can post sentences with different levels of sensitivity (in terms of privacy, discrimination, hate speech).
The aim is to enhance young people’s awareness of the mechanisms of online social networks interaction.
Social4School is a project developed at the Department of Computer Science (University of Turin) and co-funded by Fondazione CRT.
