Wielding the power of social media for social change




June 13, 2023

We are happy to share that our team started working on the β€œWielding the power of social media for social change” Handbook which will integrate new media into the practices of teachers and youth mentors. The new proposed handbook will fill the gaps that occur within the home and school in supporting young people to understand technology, the importance of social media activism and engaging young people as active citizens.πŸ“„πŸ’»πŸ’«
The final product of this result will help both, youngsters and educators (youth workers, youth mentors) with new training and learning methodologies in order to be able to utilize an online setting to conduct their work with online activism and participation. πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈπŸ™‹β€β™‚οΈπŸ’πŸ’β€β™€οΈπŸ§β€β™‚οΈπŸ§β€β™€οΈ
The guideline will include a set of ICT tools and skills that are important for the daily engagement of youngsters on SM (online safety, social networks for reaching out to other peers, tools for online cooperation, online counselling, open educational resources etc.) and offers youth workers an online platform for their development.
The research team meet online where they discussed the:
