RiotID Educational Material

In the aftermath of events like the London Riots, Occupy movement and Ferguson, educators around the world look to bring current event teaching into their classrooms. Yet the lack of publicly accessible information on the policing of these events makes it difficult to teach and discuss sensitive issues around crowd control and policing powers, as well as the rights and risks of protest, particularly for young people.

The aim of the RiotID Educational Material project is to design tailored content for school teachers, to help address the above mentioned issue in the classroom, by integrating visual information resources (i.e. infographics) in teaching/learning practices.

The project involves Anna Feigenbaum and Isabella Rega, both Senior Lecturers in the Faculty of Media and Communication
