This project specifically aims at increasing the knowledge of social networking and the European Convention on Human Rights and enhancing participants’ awareness in the production, use and misuse of media, cyber-bullying. They will be able to distinguish types of popular social networking sites and practices (YouTube, Facebook, Badoo, Second Life, Splinder, etc.), identify their differences and similarities, experience practical sessions with their students and learn about how they use new media. They will get familiar with and analyse the European Convention on Human Rights and relate it with the implications for misuses and abuses of new media (for example cyber-bullying). Finally, they will be trained to find positive and creative ways of using media for educational and leisure purposes.
