I along with my colleague Amira will be facilitating a professional development training on "Transforming Youth From Social Media Consumers to Creators" on Wednesday, March 17. Here's the full description:
Global Kids has been a leader integrating social media tools within educational programs to develop 21st Century skills since 2000. With the emergence of online media from Youtube to Wikipedia, the new digital generation is presented with opportunities to broadcast their voice in unprecedented ways. In this training, educators will be engaged in hands on activities using social media tools that have educational applications, such as blogs, digital comics, maps and more, and hear about successful case studies from a variety of educational settings.
The workshop is open to anyone who is interested, although obviously most useful for those who work with young people in the teen/ tween age ranges.
All Global Kids trainings are offered at $75 per person with a discounted rate of $50 each for two sessions or more. Trainings take place from 9:00 am to 3.00 pm on the day indicated, at Global Kids' Center for Global Leadership, located at 137 East 25th Street, 2nd Floor, New York, NY 10010.
