GNML Online - Five Sessions Completed and 5 More to Go!

USA | Global New Media Lab | 7 Dec 2013

GNML Online has engaged approximately 200 students from over 45 countries since the program launched in October 2013! As we approach the start of the new year, we also mark the halfway point of our online program. With five sessions live, A-SMYLE, FLEX, and YES students have learned to work on an online classroom platform (a new skill for many!) and began creating a Social Media for Social Change Campaign related to a social issue in their home country. Thus far students have learned how to engage key constituents using Blogger and Twitter while learning how to train information to find them using RSS feeds and Google Alerts.

At the midpoint in the GNML Online program, we are excited to launch the online application for the 2014 Youth TechCamp in Burlington, Vermont on April 6-12, 2014.

Twenty-six applicants will be selected to participate in the Youth TechCamp. During the Youth TechCamp students will gain valuable leadership, public speaking and training skills. Students will exercise these skills as they develop and implement action plans that will teach others in their home community how to harness the power of social media for social change. Additionally students will also learn advanced social/digital media skills.

To be eligible for selection to participate in the 2014 Youth TechCamp you must:

* Be a current A-SMYLE, YES, or FLEX student
* Be actively participating in GNML Online - Having completed Session #1-6
* Available to travel from April 6-12, 2014
* Commit to completing the strategic action plan you develop during the Youth TechCamp and to communicating with PH International regularly throughout the 6 months following the program.

Finalists will be announced on January 15, 2014.
