Bias? Start with yourself!
We all have biases - conscious or unconscious - and they can be harmful. To become aware of biases at an early age, turns out to positively affect long-term reduction in implicit and explicit bias. Therefore the Anne Frank foundation developed – together with TinQwise – a blended learning program for Dutch primary schools to support teachers and youth workers in creating awareness about bias. The name of the learning-program? 'Bias? Start with yourself!'
The learning program coaches teachers how to make bias a subject of classroom conversation, and supports them with educational tools such as: group assignments, informative videos and ready-to-use case studies.
