Fairness Toolkit- to explore Bias, Trust and Fairness in Algorithms

A toolkit that has been co-created with young people and stakeholders, designed to promote awareness and stimulate a civic dialogue about how algorithms shape our online experiences. This is a useful tool for developing digital literacy skills, media literacy skills and critical thinking skills.

The toolkit consists of three main parts:

  1. Awareness Cards- a deck of cards designed to help young people to learn more about algorithm and explore scenarios that illustrate how bias in algorithmic systems can affect them.
  2. Trustscapes- a poster for young people to visualise their experiences of algorithmic bias, data protection and online safety, and put forward their recommendations for change to make the online world fair and trustworthy.
  3. MetaMaps- a poster for stakeholders in the ICT industry, policymaking, regulation, public sector and research to respond to the young people’s TrustScapes.

This is an output of research from the ‘UnBias’ project, which is a collaborative project between the Universities of Nottingham, Oxford and Edinburgh. The Fairness Toolkit was designed and published by Proboscis.
