Using Social Media to teach Life skills

Every second week we will be hosting a group of school girls for the introduction to social media and the various tools on the World Wide Web. The social media classes forms part of their life skills for the year. These sessions are facilitated by 2009 mom2.0 graduate Rae Goedeman. Rae is a widow from the Bridgetown Community, who has acquired the necessary skills, and has taken the initiative to present social media tools to these young women who come from difficult and challenging backgrounds.

We barely touched the surface on social media platforms, such as Blogging, Micro-Blogging, Facebook and Video Photo Sharing sites. The students has never used Social Media tools or really any web literacy experience. This will make them a perfect candidate for Social Media Experts, and not only will they be in a position to share a message of hope to others in their community but they can then facilitate the next batch of students. The focus is “Social Media for Social Change”.
