CFA to Conduct Media Training for Public School Teachers

Oct 9th 2012

After conducting a series of Social Media seminars at the request of various private schools around the country, the Communication Foundation for Asia is now preparing to offer the same training for public school educators. Metrobank Foundation has made it possible for CFA to organize workshops to provide free training on Social Media for sixty public school teachers in Metro Manila and in Davao.

The aim of the seminars is to increase the social media skills of public school teachers. The rationale behind this project is that educators need to employ the new media forms popular among the youth so that they can communicate more effectively with their students. CFA therefore plans to develop the public school teachers’ skills and confidence to use web-based technologies that will engage their students and make the teaching-learning process more effective.

Please The seminar will be in three batches: the first will be held in November 2012 for public high school teachers (30 participants) in Davao City; and the second and third will be conducted in January 2013 for public high school teachers (15 participants each) in the National Capital Region. The first seminar will be held in Davao City and will be conducted by a “flying team” of two resource persons from CFA, while the second and third seminars for NCR participants will be held at the CFA premises in Manila.

The sessions will include an overview of social media, a discussion of how social media can be utilized for teaching and learning, and hands-on use of the latest social media technologies.

Participants will be taught where to find educational social media materials, how to download these web-based materials and use them offline, and how to use various other applications to make their instruction not only relevant but interesting.

This public school initiative is CFA’s second educational project to be supported by Metrobank Foundation. The awarding of this latest grant to CFA was made on the 50th anniversary celebration of Metrobank Foundation in August 2012.
