SİBER ZORBALIĞIN ERGENLER ÜZERİNDEKİ ETKİSİ VE DEĞERLER

Teknolojinin hızlı gelişmesi ve yaygınlaşması, beraberinde birtakım problemler de getirmiştir. Bilhassa ergenler, bu gelişimin olumsuz anlamda en fazla etkilenen kesimi oluşturmaktadırlar. Vakitlerinin önemli bir kısmını internette harcayan gençler, siber zorbalıkta bulunma, siber zorbalığa maruz kalma gibi negatif yönde etkiler görmektedirler. Gençler arasındaki zorbalık ve şiddet eylemleri, artık sanal ortamlarda kendini göstermektedir. Dolayısıyla yapılan araştırmalarda, siber zorbalık mağdurları olan çocuklar ve ergenler psikolojik olarak sıkıntılar yaşadıkları saptanmıştır. Konsantrasyon problemi, okuldaki akademik başarısında düşüş, asosyallik, endişe, hüzün, kaygı, depresyon, intihar gibi eğilimlerin arttığı görülmektedir. Bu çalışmada, araştırma kapsamındaki lise öğrencilerinin siber zorbalık, siber mağduriyet ve insani değerlerinin kendi aralarındaki ilişkisi incelenerek, neler yapılabileceği hususunda öneriler sunulmuştur. İnceleme doğrultusunda, öğrencilerin siber zorbalık konusuna nasıl baktığı, bu konudaki düşüncelerinin neler olduğu, siber zorbalık yapıp yapmadığı, siber zorbalığa uğrayıp uğramadığı ve sonuçlarının neler olduğunu tespit etme amacı yönünde anket çalışması yapılmıştır.

Fake News – true of false?

Children in Northern Ireland wanted to find out how do people know if Fake News is true or false. They collected samples of Fake News to design a survey to test out people’s responses. They collected responses from 230 people and the results were analysed and displayed on a results poster. They also developed a powerpoint outlining how they made a movie arounf Fake News. It was about a boy who set up a fake website and received lots of views. However he was caught by his father and his fake online world came to an end!

Objectives: 
To find out how people tell the difference between fake and real news

Accessibility of higher education

The Students of the Tel Aviv Youth University – a project which enables periphery high-school students to take academic courses on the university – have explored the future society. Representing the young generation perspective, they pointed out dilemmas and issues that they’ll present as a challenge to the decision-makers, locally and globally.

The first phase was a journey of learning and researching various problems related to the current reality and the future of the Israeli society, through tours and lectures in a variety of subjects.Based on their “learning journey” and the attempt to explore different aspects of life in the future, the students have realized that education plays an important role in. They claimed that today there are many solutions that overcome distance problems and accessibility of higher education, but there is not enough publicity for them. They decided to try to find a solution.

During the second phase of the activity, the students received practical tools that enabled them to learn different ways to express their opinions, engage large audiences and reach decision makers like lectures about social activity, lobbying, media workshops and more.With that knowledge on their mind, the young students wrote down a brief for their campaign: they explained the issue, its relevance to the future society, and the ways that they were willing to act. Then they started to build a site about higher education programs which are available for youth in Israel.

Bridging the gaps and disagreements

The Students of the Tel Aviv Youth University, representing the young generation perspective, pointed out dilemmas and issues that they’ll present as a challenge to the decision-makers, locally and globally. The first phase was a journey of learning and researching various problems related to the current reality and the future of the Israeli society, through tours and lectures in a variety of subjects.

During their “journey of learning” they were inspired by a lecture discussing the idea of “The 4 Israeli tribes” – a phrase that was coined by the President of Israel to modify a four groups that Israel is disintegrating into: the ultra-Orthodox, the national religious, the Arab sector and the secular Jewish sector. Using their experience of living and working in the digital world, the students claim that social networks are catalysts for hate speech but can also be a promoter of social change.

In the second phase of the activity, the students received practical tools that enabled them to learn different ways to express their opinions, engage large audiences and reach decision makers like lectures about social activity, lobbying, media workshops and more.

With that knowledge on their mind, the young students wrote down a brief for their campaign: they explained the issue, its relevance to the future society, and the ways that they were willing to act.

 The students decided to outline a program for a blog which will describe their experiences in the project where Arabs and Jews, religious and secular, succeeded in bridging the gaps and disagreements – studying and living together.

Peaceful coexistence between different religions – Download the mobile app

The Students of the Tel Aviv Youth University – a project which enables periphery high-school students to take academic courses on the university – have explored the future society. Representing the young generation perspective, they pointed out dilemmas and issues that they’ll present as a challenge to the decision-makers, locally and globally.

The first phase was a journey of learning and researching various problems related to the current reality and the future of the Israeli society, through tours and lectures in a variety of subjects.

The young students believed that they should be an example of peaceful coexistence between different religions and culture – Arabs and Jews, religious and secular – that succeeded in bridging the gaps and disagreements, studying and living together. Thus, they wanted to express the idea that there is another way, and argued that people should meet each other (online and offline) and share their common hobbies and interests in order to be more tolerant to other people from different cultures. Thus, they have decided to try creating a mobile app that should help connect between teens based on their common hobbies and interests.

During the second phase of the activity, the students received practical tools that enabled them to learn different ways to express their opinions, engage large audiences and reach decision makers like lectures about social activity, lobbying, media workshops and more.

With that knowledge on their mind, the young students wrote down a brief for their campaign: they explained the issue, its relevance to the future society, and the ways that they were willing to act.

They have described their main tool – the mobile app, explained the vision using a mockup tool. You can watch the presentation that was given during the graduation ceremony to a wide audience including senior representatives from the Israeli Ministry of Education, researchers from Tel Aviv University, visitors from the third sector, educators and the families of the participants (Hebrew).

MOBİL İNSANLAR İÇİN ALTERNATİF ENERJİ KAYNAĞI STRES ÇARKI HAREKETİNDEN ÜRETİLEN ELEKTRİK İLE MOBİL CİHAZLARIN ŞARJ EDİLMESİ

Enerji kavramı ve enerji kaynakları dünden bugüne kadar en önemli konular içinde yer almaktadır. Özellikle şehirleşmenin ve teknolojik gelişmelerin getirdiği yeni yaşam tarzı bireyleri önemli bir elektrik tüketicisi haline getirmiştir. Tüketimin bu derece yoğun arttığı elektrik piyasasında üretim tarafı bu artışı karşılamak için sürekli yeni kaynak bulma ve yatırım ihtiyacı içine girmektedir. Söz konusu kaynaklar (yenilenebilir kaynaklar dahil) sınırsız ve sorunsuz değildir. İnsanların günlük yaşantısında en azından temel ihtiyaçları için gerekli elektriği alternatif kaynaklardan sağlaması mümkün olursa klasik üretim kaynaklarına yatırım ihtiyacı azalacaktır. Bu çerçevede, sürekli hareket halinde olmayı seven ve bu süreçte de iletişim kaynaklarından kopmak istemeyen bireyler için hareket enerjisini yine kendi ihtiyaçları için kullanılabilir bir elektrik enerjisine dönüştürebilecek çözümler üzerinde çalışılmalıdır. Buna örnek olarak stres çarkı dönme hareketinin yarattığı kinetik enerjiyi bir dinamo vasıtasıyla elektrik enerjisine dönüştüren ve bir enerji depolama ünitesi aracılığıyla veya doğrudan mobil iletişim cihazlarının şarj edilebilmesi sağlayan bir tasarım üzerinde çalışma yapılmıştır. Uygun malzeme ve ara bağlantılar yardımıyla verimli olarak kullanılabilir hale getirilmesi durumunda söz konusu tasarımın insanların hem merkezi elektrik kaynaklarından yaptığı tüketimi azaltması hem de mobil halde elektrik kaynağı aramak sıkıntısını ortadan kaldırması açısından faydalı görülmektedir.

The refugees problem and the future

The students of Tel Aviv Summer University took a tour to the south of Tel Aviv city – where a lot of disadvantaged communities live. They learned about problems of the refugee’, the newcomers to the neighborhood, and of the host population.

Using the future wheel method, which they have practiced while being led by Dr. Tal Soffer, head of the unit for technology and society foresight (TSF) at Tel Aviv University, they tried to understand what would be the expression of the problem in the future.

The discussion started with the understanding that developments in transportation have led to a situation in which migration is sometimes easier, and the developments in communications and consumerism have led to raising awareness among populations to the gap between them and the developed countries. All of these are increasing the desire to emigrate. Then, they wrote the headline “Refugees – The Young Generation”, and the arrows from the headline point to the words “Poverty”, “Connection to Israelis”, “Crime”, “Overcrowding”, “Employment” and “Education”. The word “Overcrowding” was associated with the word “Higher Education” (in the context of innovative housing solutions) and the word “Employment” was linked to the words “Robots” and “Unemployment”.

Then, they figured out that the solution is education, so they had written the word “Education” and the arrows pointed to the words: “Budget,” “Socialization”, “Language”, “Computer Science”, “Motivation”, “Exact sciences”. They also examined various aspects of the question of socialization.

A special presentation of the WYRED project

A major milestone for The Tel Aviv Summer University  program was achieved as the young students presented their projects in their graduation ceremony.
The program was led by Dr. Tal Soffer, head of The unit for technology and society foresight (TSF) at Tel Aviv University, and the Youth Summer University’s staff. The students were exposed to various issues related to the digital society in the present and in the future, focusing on the Israeli society. It was done through various tours in relevant places and lectures about different subjects. Following that, the students were asked to identify a problem that would be important in the year 2030, to explore it, analyze, and propose creative solutions that will engage with large audiences and reach the decision makers. The work was done in teams where the students could express their opinion in a moderated dialog.

During the graduation ceremony the WYRED project was presented, and the students showcased their projects to a wide audience including (no : necessary) senior representatives from  the Israeli Ministry of Education, researchers from Tel Aviv University, visitors from the third sector, educators and the families of the participants. 
You can have a small glimpse of two scenes video clip from one of the team projects, which deals with the refugees issue:

(Shown in the picture above : The young students are standing in front of a slide that says “Thank you” in a special font that combines letters in Hebrew and Arabic).
