RS ZOOM Postcard
Round Square Zoom Postcard - Ashbury College, Canada
12 students and 1 teacher attended the Round Square Zoom Postcard hosted by Ashbury College, Canada. The theme of the postcard was "The Dangers of Social Media among Teens".
The conference kick started with immense zeal and excitement. The students were given a brief about the topic and then all the kids were sent to different baraza sessions, which were named after animals of Canadian origin. The students got to engage in conversations on various topics like Predators out there, Social Media and Advertisement, Expectations Vs Reality, Over Exposure to Social Media etc.
130+ students from 24 like minded schools around the world participated in the zoom postcard and exchanged their views. We learnt that rather than adopting other means, confronting the problem is a more appropriate solution.
This was indeed a well organized, thought provoking, and a memorable experience which is truly unforgettable!
