Participants received training, mentorship, and support to build their technical and subject matter capabilities and networked with leading professionals in their fields across the Americas. The Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs designed the seminar with experts from the U.S. Institute of Peace´s ¨PeaceTechLab” and the National Association for Media Literacy Education (NAMLE), with logistical and management support from World Learning. Facilitators and trainers included leaders from Reuters, Gallup, PBS, Twitter, and Facebook. Participants also showcased relevant projects inspired by their previous exchange programs and TechCamps via panel discussions and a virtual poster show.
