Parent-Child Bonding over Electronic Collage Class

I conducted one course in end-Nov in one of the People’s Association Community Clubs. It was a crash course as within 1.5 hours I introduced cyber wellness, mobile photography 101, and electronic collage-making and gave a glimpse of how to make a video slideshow. Luckily, the learners were very open, enthusiastic and receptive. In this class, I had lower primary learners. At this adorable age, the children were timid and looked up to the teacher. The mothers were a little tech-savvy, eager to learn more to add to their existing knowledge.
At the end of the session, I asked them how would they apply the skills just learned.
One of them had stored 10 years of her photos all on her iPhone! She was happy to find out how she could organise them into digital albums so that she can find the pictures she needs in the future. She just came back from a family holiday so she was keen to work on an electronic scrapbook to record the travel experience. The other parent had been using some mobile applications to work on collages. However, the shortcoming was one cannot go back to edit and make changes to the finished collage. She was very happy to learn about the new mobile app that allows her to edit the collage and stitch them into a video slideshow.
Here was one of the messages that I received after the class.
‘Hi. My daughter enjoyed it a lot today and made a few scrapbooks! And thank you for the information. I’ll sign my mother up.’
