Project Name: Responsible Use of Social Media Workshop
Partner: forum Ziviler Friedensdienst | Civil Peace Service (forumZFD)
Outputs: Training Assessment, Training Design, Workshop
forumZFD Philippines Program has been conducting activities with senior high school students in Cotabato City, in collaboration with Kutawato Multimedia Network (KuMuNet) and Nonviolent Peaceforce to “look at how the youth make use of social media and the Internet in general and how these practices impact already fragile situations.”
The overall workshop approach was to draw out experiences of participants as much as possible in different ways through group exercises and provide synthesis through short inputs or videos, if available. Lecture-type activities were avoided except in the sessions about the fact-checking tools. Post-workshop, a closed Facebook group was created to share workshop materials, outputs, photos, etc. as well as regular feedback from the participants.
