WAGGGS Surf Smart for Guides Session 1 (Virtual)
Dear Guide Guiders,
Surf Smart is a WAGGGS badge programme that contains lots of fun activities to help our girls develop new digital skills and awareness. The curriculum provides a unique resource which will equip girls with the skills required, so that they will be able to connect positively with others online, protect themselves and others as well as respect their own rights and reputation in the digital world.
To value-add our girls’ experience, GGS is partnering with Singapore Children’s Society to conduct an e-workshop for the Guides. The training will incorporate the fundamentals from WAGGGS Surf Smart (Connect, Protect, & Respect) as well as Singapore Children’s Society Bully-Free Programme materials. To enhance the knowledge retention and sharing of their learnings with their peers, the participants will be guided to design pieces of work to raise awareness on Bully-Free messages. Each group of 5 Guides (from the same unit) will be scheduled to attend a post programme consultation session with Singapore Children’s Society to prepare for the awareness campaign.
Mode of delivery: Digital via Zoom (the link will be sent to the participating schools nearer the training date)
No. of sessions: two (2 hours for each workshop) – compulsory to attend both sessions
Session 1: Friday, 29 Jan 2021 (3:00 pm – 5:00 pm)
