The UnBias Youth Juries engage young people in discussion of issues that affect their online lives, especially in relation to algorithms, through the presentation of scenarios and prompts. Results from the first wave of juries, held in February 2017, produced valuable data about the concerns of young people and recommendations for improving their digital environments. Feedback regarding the jury structure suggested a series of interactive tasks to elicit more debate amongst the participants. This paper presents results from a pilot study using these tasks and discusses the plans for a second wave of juries. This includes creation of an advisory group to ensure materials are relevant to the target audience, and an open educational resource that enables other groups to run their own youth juries.
