The challenge is to spread new seeds in the classroom for true digital citizenship from the perspective of gender equality. To do this, the project is supported by a theoretical and practical program commissioned to the Optionate Association and in which face-to-face participatory sessions play a leading role with the aim that students make a personal analysis of their cybernetic experiences and their role in when identifying and denouncing bad practices.
In this way, aspects related to cybersecurity and the risks and attacks of various kinds on the Internet are put on the table, as well as prevention, detection and action against sexist cyber-violence on social networks, video games and other platforms. In contrast, examples and ways are proposed for the exercise of cyberactivism in favor of equality.
The process includes the development of various materials and audiovisual content, including a video with the participation of the students, for dissemination on social networks, to which printed posters will be added. All these results will be available to the public on the project’s web platform, which is about to see the light of day.

The brooch will be a final exhibition to the group of colleagues to share what they have learned.
