Methodology of the Winter School
The simulation exercise was a kick-off and a highlight of the content and the theme of the school. The simulation game allowed us to see how the different media houses develop their stories and the different angles that they use for their stories. Different papers use different angles to report and this favours certain social groups and not others. One of the main aims of the school is to start the process of organisations creating their own media houses.
The school will be organised as a media house. Participants will be divided in into six groups, two woman-only groups, one man-only group, one youth group and two mixed groups. Each day the groups will produce their own media. The different groups will develop their media house from scratch and each day will produce a newspaper article, a Facebook post and a WhatsApp post. B
