Teach Technology to Vulnerable Children
June 2020 Project Report
The world is transforming to stop the pandemic, and so we are!!!
We spent some weeks adapting our workshops to a virtual learning environment, so we could restart our work in a safe way when conditions were appropriate.
In May, we held two virtual workshops with Casa Esperanza, offering 26 adolescents in Calidonia and Samaria key information to stay safe in a digital environment, especially now that they are more connected than ever. They learned about digital intelligence, digital citizenship, on-screen time control and cyberbullying. In June, we will hold 3 additional workshops with them, focused on cybersecurity, digital empathy and digital footprint.
Additionally, we held online workshops with another group of adolescents. This time with the Panamanian chapter of SOS Children Villages, so that youngsters between 14 and 18 years of age, staying at their villages, could take our complete training on digital citizenship. In these sessions, we were joined by 29 girls and 12 boys between the ages of 14 and 18, in the cities of Colon, Penonomé and David.
We keep faith that, in the following months, we are going to be able to continue working for a safe digital environment for children, which is more important now than ever. We appreciate your financial contributions that made this project a reality and will keep you posted on the upcoming workshops.
