Trendy Media for Youth Workers, was a seminar, where we have been using media, like: Facebook, LinkedIn, about.me, different editors for photos´ and videos´, we were speaking about the online safety, working with teachers, online ethics, 10 tips for effective message, tips how to get published, what to prepare for press release and what kind of information is most valuable, how to prepare good storyline, etc. We also used an application – Actionbound, made a lot of energising activities and we were discussing/brain storming about the different topics every day, under the non-formal education.
We would like to say “thank you” to Déčko, for providing us this nice opportunity to see the part of Czech Republic, meet new people and learn something new about the trendy media.
