The pros and cons of social media by Ferran Porta

The pros and cons of social media by Ferran Porta

Resum de la ponència

For professional reasons, as a journalist, but also on a personal level, I have been a user of social media practically since its inception. They are a great tool for many reasons, but they also carry risks - especially among younger users. 

As part of the stay at the Faber Andorra Residence, the opportunity arose to give talks to students from two centers: the Sant Ermengol School, in Andorra la Vella, and the Aixovall Vocational Training Center, in Sant Julià de Lòria. In both cases, the talk on social media focused especially on the risks and how to avoid them. I also found it interesting to give them some ideas for positive uses, such as making Andorran heritage known. Instagram is for much more than just posting selfies!   

In the case of the CFP of Aixovall, I was asked if I could give the talk in English. The students followed it very well and showed interest, which I also perceived in a large part of the 3rd ESO students of Sant Ermengol. In this same school I gave a talk on "Living in Berlin" to 1st year high school students who are studying German.
