Currently the team is developing the E-learning modules as well as the platform that will be available for users after September, so that they could take the free online courses on the following topics:
I. Digital and social skills need for youth workers /volunteers in their work with refugees
II. How NGOs can use digital tools and social media in refugee work?
III. How refugees use social media and digital tools during their journey to Europe?
IV. Successful strategies of NGOs for inclusion of refugees in society.
The e-learning courses will provide youth workers and volunteers new skills and knowledge on use of social media networks for providing a lifeline for refugees on their journeys to Europe. Youth workers will get a better grasp of the surveillance and empowerment paradox in social media networks in order to identify how best and at which points to help the most vulnerable refugees. At the moment, there is a clear lack of e-learning courses on this theme and NGOs know very little about the media journeys of refugees and what precise information they need.
