The second day of Conectándonos Ecuador was an opportunity for participants to hone their skills in various subjects, including blogging, covering events in real time, creating an audio podcast, and more. They were also placed into groups according to their interests and were instructed to create an online project using their newly acquired skills in citizen media. Here is a short summary of the second day of Conectándonos Ecuador.
Following the success of Conectándonos Bolivia, Rising Voices teamed with the Technical University of Loja (UTPL for its initials in Spanish) to replicate the gathering in Ecuador. Thirty-four participants representing a variety of Ecuadorian provinces arrived in Loja on May 24. Although they had different interests, participants arrived ready to learn and to connect with others who are using citizen media in their local communities.
