“I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.”~Confucius~
From the perspective of student-voice, relevant storytelling, and real-world examples, we demonstrate what gratitude, character and purpose on Social Media looks like – and link it to student-life, online.
Delivered remotely via the Zoom video-conferencing platform, we believe that an inspiring and realistic series of examples cultivates hope, skills and confidence and far outweighs a message grounded in fear, loss and risk.
What students post today absolutely does matter tomorrow and will impact them both short and long-term. As well, the pursuit of drama and their Fear of Missing Out (FOMO) often contributes to feelings of stress, anxiety and other issues.
Learning takeaways; through a series of exercises centred around two questions; What and Why, students evaluate the importance, value and substance of online friends and followers – and the fact that their self-worth is not defined by their Likes.
Because your students’ “Whats and Whys” are self-generated, they learn to think critically that “posting with purpose” is grounded in gratitude, mindfulness and intention. A students’ deep need to be externally validated through their posted content (Likes, Comments, Shares and Favourites) diminishes and instead is replaced by five important criteria: Listen More, Post Less, Stay Relevant, Add Value, Be Respectful.
