Mom’s telling the World about the MOM2.0 Sessions

Photo Blogging With The Ladies

The ladies of the MOM2.0 Cafe Sessions is not so nervous like before they say they are more comfortable exploring the world wide web. In every session we remind them that the web2.0 is about creating, sharing content on their space and also engaging. A few weeks ago we introduced the photo sharing site Flickr to them where the ladies can share photos with the world.

As you all know by know that I love blogging so our last MOM2.0 cafe session was about blogging. I guided them through the process of adding a pic into their blog post, a pic can tell a thousand words. I think the readers will get a deeper feel from what they are writing.

Clinton Liederman one of the facilitates enjoyed the photo blogging session with the ladies so much that he asked me to help him setup his blog This just a good encouragement for me and looking forward for future outcomes of  the Social Media for  Social Change projects under the banner Reconstructed Living Lab

Reconstructed Video Blogging Session

vlogging Vlogging

In today’s Reconstructed Session I could sit back as a student. The session was facilitated by Marlon Parker, teaching us all about video blogging (Vlogging). We did a practical session where we recorded some videos and uploaded the videos on YouTube, the tool that we will use to store all our video. After adding videos on YouTube we posted some video post on our Reconstructed Blog.

The guys was really excited about this session because all that they want to do is to share their stories with people out there that is addicted to drugs. I’m just as excited to see how they are going to use video blogging on their space http://www.theronstructed.com.
