28 youth participants from Negros Island and Iloilo gathered together for a full day of learning and hands-on practice – exploring different digital tools such as mobile journalism, crowdfunding, digital storytelling and digital marketing.
Aside from learning from mentors and resource persons, participants were also able to plan projects/campaigns guided by the Design Thinking Process. They also learned the basics of peacebuilding (Peace, Conflict and Violence) from OPAPP (Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process), and Google Apps for Social Good from a representative of Google Philippines.
The Visayas leg of TechCamp Philippines was held last Saturday, March 3 at Conference Room 2, 4th Floor, Henry Luce III Library, Central Philippine University, Jaro, Iloilo City.
