Limited Capacity seats available

New media has become an integral part of the lifestyle of young people today. This poses tremendous challenges when it comes to delivery of programmes that focused on values and character education.

In The Girls’ Brigade where the inculcation of good values, character building and leadership development is integral to the development of the TOTAL GIRL, the presenters had wanted to harness new media in delivering some of these aspects of the programme.

With the support of the Ministry of Education, four online modules were developed.

The four modules are

1. Digital Explorer (cyber-wellness for members in the primary schools)

• It intends to raise awareness about the dangers of the Digital World, particularly in the area of cyber-bullying.

2. HA Quest 1 (self-awareness for Secondary 1 members)

• In the module, the girls find out about their individual personality and preferences which allows them to accept that each person is unique and enables them to appreciate differences in others.

3. HA Quest 2 (self-management for Secondary 3 members)

• The module is designed to bring the girls towards an understanding their personal responses to the four challenges presented.

4. LEAD (self-awareness in communications for Secondary 2 members)

• The module intends to build up self-awareness on how each person relates to others and how they could manage their emotions.

Each module is designed as an online QUEST. The girls work independently through each module. Their progress, responses and reflections are recorded in a data management system accessible to the officer. The information is then used by the officer for discussion during face-to-face sessions. Officers are provided with a Discussion Guide to enable them to focus on the key learning during these sessions.

In addition, the aggregated reflections from each module allow the officer an insight into the heart and mind of the girls. This allows the officer to identify common responses and expectations within the group which promotes better understanding of the girls. Further clarification and discussions deepen the learning for the girls too.

The presenters would be sharing the overview of the learning framework which guided the design of the modules. Participants would be given opportunities to view one of the game segments as well as gain insights into some of the reflections and would be able to view sample questions in the Discussion Guide.
