Visual Learning Tools in YOUTH WORK
Start date: Jan 5, 2015,
End date: Jun 4, 2015
Training course will gather 32 participants from 11 countries and it aims to develop competences of youth workers/leaders in using video and photography as a tool for working with youth.
This training will empower the participating youth workers and youth leaders to more efficiently and extensively use the video/fotography-tools in their everyday work, both for improving the educational process at the events themselves and also for taking the material developed and results achieved further to wider communities.
The main objectives of the project are:
- To explore the ways, techniques, means and possibilities of foto and amateur video-production with youth workers and youth leaders active in European youth work.
- To learn together the nowadays new programmes and platforms supporting video and photography creation and dissemination
- To learn and compare the basic rules of respect to copyright, creative commons etc.
- To promote young people’s active participation in society by involving them in video/photography activities;
- To develop further activities in the youth work, exploiting the results got during the training and disseminating them further to their peers and communities.
- Exchange of project ideas, building up future projects and partnerships and exchange of best practices in youth work
This Program would address a group of youth workers and civil society activists who often face the challenge to work with young people and are committed to work directly with youth on the issues related to the training.
Teaching methods: lecture followed by discussion, tutorials, discussion groups, outdoor foto/video learning, practical exercices
Through the lateral learning process this training program would support the personal and professional development of the participants, so that they act as multipliers of the gained knowledge within their organizations and their local realities.
