UNESCO TRAINING WORKSHOP (3)
- “Kostis Palamas” Hall/HALL B | Workshop 3
Workshop 3 is organized by UNESCO Institute for Information Technologies in Education (IITE) for youth and health workers, educators, youth media, content creators, volunteers, and young people themselves. Participants will get acquainted with youth-led and youth-focused digital media, applications, chatbots, communities, etc., that help young people in making healthy choices and developing enjoyable relations. Issues to be addressed include:
- Digital media for young people vs by young people vs about young people: Which caters to the needs of young people better?
- Entertain vs educate: What are the do’s and don’ts for building a digital health promotion project for youth that will actually work?
- Quality vs equality: is it possible to produce fact-based and expert approved content without sermonizing? How can young content creators manage the quality of their projects?
- Wide engagement vs inclusion and targeted support: how to address highly stigmatized issues and support vulnerable youth?
- Social media, apps, chatbots, entertainment projects – how and what to choose from a wide variety of digital sexuality education solutions? How formal education might benefit from using informal tools?
The participation in the workshop is free of charge, but prior registration is mandatory. Registrations will be handled on a first come, first served basis. Certificates of participation will be provided by UNESCO IITE.
