Logging out 2 – Session Plans for Juniors

On behalf of Fundacion MAPFRE, I would like to invite your school to participate in our new “Logging Off” campaign which consists of workshops that focus on the issues surrounding the overuse of digital media and its potential negative effects on people’s behaviour.  The workshops are designed for students in Year 5 and Year 6, to introduce the students to the topic we have produced a comedic video that will be shown at the start of each workshop.

The workshops

The workshops will be run by a trained coordinator who will make a small introduction and show the students the video we have prepared. This year schools have a choice of three different workshops to choose from, each workshop should take approximately 35-40 minutes and you may choose to do as many workshops as you want.  To view the lesson plans for each workshop and to access useful links surrounding the topics we will discuss please visit the read-only document in the link below, this document will be continually updated over the course of the campaign.

What schools need to do

Class teachers do not need to prepare anything for the workshop. Our workshops will be streamed into your classrooms via your preferred video conferencing software, students will need a pen and paper.

Workshops are available on a first-come, first-served basis and will be running from November to March, we have 175 slots available. If you are interested in participating in any of these engaging and valuable activities, please contact me via return email with the following information:

  1. Preferred weekdays and times for each workshop
  2. Teacher’s name & contact information (for workshop link)
  3. Number of students participating
  4. Preferred lesson plan (if you cannot decide one will be assigned to you on the day)
  5. Preferred video conferencing platform

Once we have received the above information, we will assign a trained coordinator to you,  any links you may need for your sessions will be sent to the teacher closer to the workshop. Last year, both our coordinators and some schools complained about issues with audio so this year we have acquired cameras and microphones to help resolve the issues. Each class will be given a set prior to their workshop, they are very easy to use and require no software installation. If these items were to be damaged before, during, or after the workshop, the school would have the cover the costs incurred. 

Kindly note that we currently only have 2 coordinators available and that each class should have its own workshop to ensure that all students can actively engage, therefore, we are unable to run more than 2 workshops at the same time. 

We understand that schools are constantly approached to host activities for students, but I am sure you would agree that these are everyday problems preventing young people from reaching their full potential. Should you have any queries or require further information, please do not hesitate to contact me via return email or on 99767676.
