Digital Creativity and Innovation Through Pandemic


LideraJovem promotes after-school leadership activities for youth. In 2020, it was the first time all the activities had to be totally online for the youth participants and volunteers, creating engagement and involvement. As protagonists, they used an EDtech platform instructing 21C skills from team building to project management, creating a shared environment. The challenge was how to transfer active learning methodologies to on-line discussions and debates.
