Time to re-learn the colours!

Welcome to the website of the project Gender Education of Teenage Boys: Developing a Digital ToolKit (G. EDU); a transnational Erasmus+ project which has created the G.EDU Platform, that is, an online learning environment on gender education for teenage boys!

 

The G.EDU Platform―available also as a Mobile Applicationis an educational toolkit aiming to provide educators/facilitators (including trainers, teachers, youth and NGO workers, gender experts, gender and LGBTIQ+ activists, policy makers and other stakeholders) with curriculum and lesson plans for the implementation of online courses on gender and gender-sensitive education. The lessons can be offered to teenagers of all genders between 15 and 17 years old but they have been developed with particular emphasis on the needs of teenage boys.

The platform is open and accessible for free while all curriculum and material is available in English, Greek, Spanish and Dutch! It can be used either for the facilitation of the complete course, or of selected activities.

The G. EDU platform includes two main tools:

1. The Facilitator's Guide and Curriculum, where one can find instructions on how to use the platform and the steps one needs to take to implement the lessons.

2. The Workbook for Participants, where learners/students can find the activities and the educational material they will need during the implementation of the lessons

 

There are four modules in the G.EDU platform, each one focusing on a particular subject:

MODULE 1: What's Gender

Created by the GALE Foundation, Netherlands

 

A module that introduces the participants to basic terms and concepts on gender and the mechanisms of categorization and discrimination. It explains terms like sex, gender, gender expression, sexual orientation, LGBTI, stereotypes, and bias, and it offers activities to play around with these words and concepts, which allows the participants to explore them in relation to their own identities.

Module 3: Combating gender-based violence

Created by the Conexus Association, Spain

A module that helps reflect on how traditional masculinity is related to violence. It delves into gender based violence, and emphasizes psychological and sexual violence: what they are, their types and consequences. It offers an online educational experience with activities and questions for reflection that are particularly appropriate for questioning ideas and prejudice which teenage boys usually have on these matters.

Module 4: Be the change

Created by the Center for Gender Equality and History, Cyprus 

 

A module based on experiential and interactive activities designed for online education exploring diversity, identity, equality, and change. It is particularly appropriate for confronting stereotypes, prejudice, and all forms of discrimination with emphasis on gender.

Module 2: Healthy relationships

Created by the Center for Social Innovation (CSI), Cyprus

 

A module that delves into the vital topic of how we build and maintain healthy relationships. A module that addresses themes such as dating, intimacy, the male and female bodies, safe relationships and safe sexual behaviors. Great attention is paid to dating violence as well as consent. The idea of the family unit is also discussed from a number of different approaches.
