Feedback from Participants and Trainers:
Though I am working in electronic media for the last 15 years and very active on Face Book, I learned many new dimensions of social media at South India Tech Camp. The second day of the Tech Camp was especially more practical and more useful. Special thanks to Venkey and Harish, the trainers of our group. The hospitality was very pleasant and logistics were admirable. It was an event of knowledge and fun. Thanks to COVA and others organizers. – – A. M. Khan Yazdani (Danny) – Participant from Vijayawada.
Came back after a fulfilling weekend training the participants in Tech Camp Bengaluru to counter online fanatic indoctrination. Facilitated sessions on storytelling, branding and immersed the participants with various digital tools to engage with their communities through social media. We co-built a prototype – a story platform for inter-religious harmony, managed by Islamic Scholars from Kasargod district in Kerala.
We need more such events, especially in local languages – like Malayalam, Kannada and Telugu – to work with participants who are working with complex issues of identity and religion in their communities. If you have digital skills, and can train people in your local mother tongue, PM me. You are more than welcome to be a part of this effort organised by Confederation of Voluntary Associations – COVA. Thank you Mazher Hussainbhai and Deepa Alige Venkataraman R.– Trainer -in a Facebook Post
