We had six ninety minute sessions to train volunteer students after school on how to use social media as a creator rather then a consumer. How to take photos and add graphics. And how to tell a story through video and edit. We also covered how to film using Facebook live.
To make this exciting and beneficial for the young students i showed how todays culture changes puts them in a very good position to live out their passions as a career if they use social media. I showed examples of people who have done this then equipped them with principles which they can apply not only to the school games event but to life also. I focused on training the students how to use what they have which was mobile phones and content creating apps that i suggested. I was impressed by the enthusiasm to learn and their ability to put what they learned into practice. The session also resulted in with 3 students changing their subject to Media while also helping all of them to be more self aware to the influences of media.
